First National Repetition – Co-production FDE Festival Danza Estate
Circus is a show that captures the attention of all generations of spectators. A kaleidoscope of aerial performances, acrobatics, ground dances, juggling, eccentric comedy and clownerie. It’s a rich and energetic fresco, the result of the collaboration between different arts and performers referring to multiple images and colours of the ancient circus tradition.
In collaboration with A levar l’ombra da terra Festival and Municipality of Levate
Monica Casadei comes from Ferrara and after a competitive career in rhythmic gymnastics she studies classic and modern dance, first in Italy, then in London, finally in Paris, where she meets the choreographers Pierre Doussaint, Isabelle Doubouloz and the maestro André Cognard Hanshi So shihan, with whom she is still practicing the martial art Aikido. In France she founds the Artemis Dance Company, which moves to Italy in 1997, giving life to an intense production activity. After working at theTeatro Due di Parma Foundation, since 2014 the company has been in artistic residence at Teatro Comunale di Bologna. Fundamental to her artistic research are the contaminations with different artistic, cultural and geographic environments, as well as the exploration of urban venues and spaces, which become theater of performative actions.
