The Spaniard Marina Mascarell and the Italian Alessandro Sciarroni are the new faces of dance today.
Trained in the visual arts and theatre, the choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni lovesto mix disciplines. His recent works were inspired by surprising physical practices: Bavarian folk dances, juggling and handball played by blind people! He draws on this material to create fascinating performances which play with rhythm and repetitive movement. A regular guest at major international festivals, this time he will take the dancers of the Lyon Ballet de l’Opéra on a wild spin, in every sense of the word!
In a very different register, the choreographer Marina Mascarell danced for many years at Nederlands Dans Theater before creating her own shows. She was recommended to the Lyon Ballet de l’Opéra by Jiri Kylian himself, who believes she is one of today’s most gifted choreographers. In the work of Marina Mascarell, formal mastery and artistic sensitivity come together to make a political and social statement. For this new piece for the Ballet de l’Opéra, she will focus on the recurring issue of feminism: “We are witnessing the birth of a new wave of feminism and dance should play a role in its emergence.
