"AbunDance" is a series of ten lectures ("dancetime stories"!) about the journey and evolution of Ballet. Marco Pelle will virtually meet us in Florence where we will start a trip that will take us through France, Russia, Western Europe again, the United States and back to Europe. We will find out together how Dance, a very fascinating form of Art, has become what it is today. "AbunDance" wants to be both a journey and a discovery, an insight and an understanding that Dance is a vital part of society because it represents the very present moment in its eternal movement.

Every "Dancetime Story" will end with an original work that Marco Pelle has choreographed for the Italian Institute, performed by Luciana Paris (Soloist dancer with American Ballet Theater) and Jonatan Lujan (former dancer at Ballett Zürich, Victor Ullate Ballet and Ballet Argentino de Julio Bocca).

All performances have been pre-recorded at the Institute and will video premiere at the end of each conference.

“Never give up a crown to anybody” (Caterina de’ Medici)

Registration required. Limited capacity. Guests will be asked to show proof of vaccination upon entry.

 

Ballet was born under Caterina De’ Medici who exported it in France. It was there, however, that it developed and became the form of Art that we know today, thanks to Louis XIV. Through fun facts, anecdotes and videos we will travel back in time, to the genesis of this incredible form of art: ballet.
Original choreography (previously recorded) danced by Luciana Paris (Soloist with American Ballet Theater) and Jonatan Lujan (former Principal with Ballett Zürich).

 

 

Marco Pelle, recipient of the 2016 Primi Dieci USA Award, under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as one of the ten most influential Italians in the USA, began his dance training in his Italy, continued in Monaco at the Academie de Danse Classique Princesse Grace before moving to New York City to study under several merit scholarships with Merce Cunningham. He’s been one of New York Theatre Ballet’s resident choreographers since 2012.
