Join us for an evening of contemporary dance as we present:
(first meditation on solitude in dance)
The CRISALIDI (chrysalis or pupa) precedes the adult state of the butterfly. The shell of the chrysalis cleaves and the butterfly begins to laboriously come out.
Butterflies live an average of one month, but some species die after only a few hours. The chrysalis can live up to 30 years before emerging as an adult.
The condition of the dancer is similar. He spends his whole life in a chrysalis condition, during which he forms, struggles with himself, tries to grow and improve. Sometimes he loses this battle, sometimes he succumbs. It is a hard, incorrect battle, constantly fought with a sense of inadequacy that sometimes results in a very strong sense of solitude. Loneliness that sometimes makes us forget that we are not the chrysalis, but the butterflies within. Yes, the dancer prepares for a lifetime to become the butterfly, than beauty, than poetry, which will last, hopefully, a month.
VIVO Ballet is committed to producing and presenting American contemporary work that physicalizes the emotional ardor of the human experience. The company pursues this goal by offering accessibility to the performing arts not just as a physical attendance, but as a visceral experience.
