FOG Triennale Milano Performing Arts is the Triennale Milano's festival dedicated to the most interesting and engaging expressions of theatre, dance, performance and music. A project confirming its international and multidisciplinary vocation by producing and hosting artists from the United States, Argentina, France, Switzerland, Germany, Mali, Japan, Iran, Cyprus, Spain, Austria, the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Taiwan and Italy, underlining once again the need for an open vision of the world.
Dialogo Terzo: IN A LANDSCAPE
Yet, beside the patience and effort required by performing reiterative patterns, a new quality emerges, which eludes definition. Determination seems to lead to disappearance, to a voluntary extinction of the subject. The dance embodies an extreme act of love and, as in John Cage’s music, becomes a bridge to the sublime.
For the fifth edition of the festival, Radio Raheem extends and enlivens its programming at the Palazzo dell’Arte with “real life” live sets, live performances and radio programmes in the Triennale’s corridors and halls, featuring artists Jay Glass Dubs, L I M, Volume & Friends, Ormeye, and Elasi.
Dying on Stage
The representation of death – a vertiginous proposition. Taking as starting point Rudolf Nureyev’s 1991 staging of the classical ballet La Bayadère, choreographed while his health was critically deteriorating, Christodoulos Panayiotou’s lecture-performance Dying on Stage is a meditation on the impossible theatrical representation of death.
Avremo ancora l’occasione di ballare insieme
The duo of authors, directors and performers Daria Deflorian and Antonio Tagliarini engage with Federico Fellini’s cinematic vision and with his deep exploration of human life. The result is a piece on coming together, dancing together, being a couple – on intimacy and dialogue.
Swans never die
Camilla Monga – Chiara Bersani – Philippe Kratz – Virna Toppi
What is left today of a choreographic work which is considered a milestone in 20th century Western dance history? In what forms and through what bodies has it survived over time? Who is in charge of its legacy and why? What traces has it left in the choreographers of today and what values can it carry into the future?
