This edition will be subdivided into 3 different sections: “Miti”, which focuses on the esthetics and the beauty of physical movements linked to the music, “Scene dagli anni Ottanta”, which comes back to the origins of contemporary times through some of the masterpieces of dance’ history, and “Platel e les ballets C de la B”, which explores the op position between pain and hope through the enchanting poit of view of Alain Platel and his company.

Torinodanza festival 2010 will be inaugurated with Balanchine-Kylián of the Royal Ballet of Flanders on Tuesday 7th September at Teatro Regio in Turin with its first Italian premiere. The company from Belgium will arrive to Turin with three titles: Theme and Variations by George Balanchine, Forgotten Land and 27’ 52” by Jirí Kylián.

The show will go on the stage on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th September at Fonderie Limone in the town of Moncalieri. After HELL and [purgatorio] POPOPERA, you PARA?DISO will end the cycle inspired from the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri, with a choreography that wants to reveal the deepest memory of body.
