Artemis Danza on tour in Vietnam and South Corea

Vietnam and South Corea are the countries hosting the new tour of Monica Casadei and her company Artemis Danza, which will be on stage with the performance Traviata.

Traviata is part of a project by Monica Casadei that investigates and interprets the characters (female, in particular), the key-themes, and the archetypes of opera according to a modern choreographic approach.

In the tribute to Giuseppe Verdi and his famous melodramma, dance and opera duet and give shape to a flow of images free from any desire for didactic adherence, but closely linked to Violetta and her unhappy story.
Monica Casadei’s Traviata is told from Violetta’s point of view: Violetta in white, hope of pureness, Violetta in red, a bleeding heart, Violetta multiplied in many female characters… Monica Casadei and her dance company get inside the tragedy of a woman whose hope for a feeling of love is denied.
