L'Altra Meta Del Cielo
Choreographed by Martha Clarke
Starring Sabrina Brazzo, Andrea Volpintesta, Beatrice Carbone
1 hour and 20 minutes



In l'altra metà del cielo ("The other side of the sky"), Martha Clarke, MacArthur "Genius Grant" winner and vital choreographer, takes on an usual challenge  staging a dance piece based on the music of aging Italian rock star Vasco Rossi, a man known for his drug use, racism, and misogyny. The resulting piece is nothing short of magical  Clarke transforms his lyrics of hatred into a piece that glorifies the feminine identity, rather than tear it down. This groundbreaking and unique work is presented by the La Scala Ballet.

ABOUT

America theatre director and choreographer Martha Clarke teams up with an unlikely collaborator: Vasco Rossi, an aging Italian rock star known for his misogynist, xenophobic and racist lyrics (and rampant drug abuse). Clarke's wisdom has shaped this unlikely source material into a beautiful work of contemporary ballet that lifts up the female identity, rather than tearing it down; the women that Vasco has sung about so often with hate has been transformed. The characters of Albachiara, Silvia and Susanna represent distinct passages of a woman's life: adolescence, growth, and maturity.

Martha Clarke, winner of the MacArthur "Genius Grant," is noted for her ironic and unconventional approach, and her receptivity to the fusion of artistic languages. She has sought out the heart of the characters, of the dancers and the songs. With a poetic, essential and refined visual key, she has interpreted the feminine universe through movement, gestures, dance, and all the elements of the set.
