This performance brings together distinct voices of European contemporary ballet in a three-part program with one common thread: Love. With their own individual heritage and language, three choreographers courageously meet the challenge of creating a work on such a powerfully charged theme.
As explained by Ivan Cavallari, Artistic Director of the company, “With this program, I wanted to open a dialogue. It’s an artistic choice: the company’s seasons play off one another, and building on that momentum we have approached three female choreographers for an upcoming season. The subject could vary depending on the discussions I have with these artists in the near future. That said, my intention is for the works presented by Les Grands Ballets to resonate in tune with one another. With Femmes (Parlami d'Amore), I didn’t want to talk about women as objects, but from a broader perspective: in relation to life, to love and to the Earth. In keeping that spirit of openness, and in light of the questions raised by the title, we have decided to put forward a new name which we hope will be considered more appropriate.”
Accordingly, the performance is now renamed Parlami d’Amore.
“In its essence, that’s what this performance is truly about. Life and love. Love in all its forms in today’s society. Love in its broadest sense, as a driving force of life.
Three new choreographic voices engage in a fascinating dialogue between their individual universes. A powerful event!
