Amor vincit omnia

choreography by Alberto Canestro
music by Enrico Fabio Cortese
costumes by Alberto Canestro

After the success of "Shame. Dances against violence ", the collaboration of the Lyric Dance Company with the Puccini Theater of Florence continues with" Caravaggio. Amor vincit omnia "that the choreographer and artistic director Alberto Canestro has dedicated to one of the greatest exponents of Italian painting of all time.

The lights, the atmospheres and the colors of the painting by Michelangelo Merisi known as "Caravaggio" have always been loved by the choreographer Alberto Canestro, who graduated in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence who also worked out the splendid costumes worn by the dancers of his company. The danced gesture gives three-dimensionality to the pictorial composition. With rigor and elegance, in fact the dancers of Lyric Dance Company almost seem to come out of the Master's paintings, in a continuum of intentionality and emotionality, where the drama of the pictorial composition finds a natural unfolding in space.

The choreographer codifies in his neoclassical language the emotional charge and the compositional strength of the paintings and through his sensitivity as a multidisciplinary artist, he exalts the plastic elements and lets them flow and change into current forms in which the enormous respect and admiration for the great artist of the seventeenth century.

On stage the dancers of the company: Eugenio Casella, Nicola Giannellini, Sofia Monti, Federica Paganelli, Benedetta Pollini, Leandro Salvischiani and Reika Vigilucci.

The music of the show was specially written by the composer Enrico Fabio Cortese, a contemporary composer known for his work in cinema, in fiction, in dance, for his style that combines symphonic music with electronic sounds.

Lyricdancecompany will also be present at the Teatro Puccini on April 4th with the national premiere of "Piaf. Hymne à l'amour "(info: www.lyricdancestudio.it ).
