Compagnia Zappalà Danza - Liederduett

Bookmark

A poetic two-part performance with vocal music and dance about Cain and Abel and the ancient story of the first murder.<br />
<br />
Electronic music, a piano on which music by Schubert is played, four bodies, and a counter tenor are the equal protagonists in the two-part performance LIEDERDUETT by Compagnia Zappal&agrave; Danza, one of the most renowned dance companies in Italy. In a poetic balance between singing, music, and dance, choreographer Robert Zappal&agrave; was inspired by the story of Cain and Abel. In part one, Corpo a corpo, the conflict between the desire to stay and to leave is transformed to today&rsquo;s civil wars, mass migration, and death. Mourning as building blocks of the world. But what if Cain hadn&rsquo;t killed Abel? Counterpart Come le ali takes this utopian idea as point of departure. Two bodies merge into a new organism, a symbiosis past the conflict where equality prevails. A two-part performance you take in through your synapses.
