Event description

Description

Founded in 1994 by Monica Casadei, Artemis Danza is a first class dancing company which has performed with great success in Europe, Asia and Africa. The show they propose is part of an artistic three-year project, dedicated to female figures of some great composers of the twentieth century.

ToscaX is the first performance of the new project of Monica Casadei called “Corpo d’Opera”, dedicated to great composers of the 20th century. Through this new creation, the artistic director and choreographer of the Italian dance company Artemis Danza proposes her personal version of Tosca, one of the most famous as well as dramatic opera play written by the Italian composer Giacomo Puccini. The performance focuses on the central act of Tosca and aims at investigating the relationship between Baron Scarpia, a man craving for possession, and the famous Tosca, a woman living for art. ToscaX seems like a thriller, where Tosca plays the role of the victim and Scarpia personifies the persecutor.
Solos and dance ensemble come in quick succession without a break. Masculine, dynamic, quick, vigorous choreografies match the dramatic and excited action and the rushing musical rhythm of the act, as to create an unanimous, passionate, instinctive and sometimes wild dance, using the space in a swirly way and giving a full visual impression. Playing upon opposites is a common line in the whole play.

The event is organized by the Embassy of Italy in the framework of the Italian Festival in Thailand 2017.
