Artemis Danza on tour in South America

Venezuela, Peru, Chile, Uruguay welcome Monica Casadei’s “Traviata”. September 21st - October 2nd

Artemis Danza is going on tour in South America, a long tour which starts in Venezuela to end in Uruguay.

The company will present Traviata – successful show that takes on Verdi’s opera from Violetta’s point of view.

Traviata is one of Monica Casadei's choreographies aiming at translating the most famous operatic masterpieces into the language of dance, investigating their characters, key-themes, archetypes.

Casadei dealt with Verdi and Wagner, Donizetti and Bizet, Puccini and Rossini. Among her creations, the female characters, in particular, and their dramatic stories inspired the choreographer: Aida, Carmen, Butterfly, Tosca, and Violetta, namely, “a story in which the sense of the end flows with every raising of a glass”.

Referring to Verdi’s arias, Violetta is told with different styles and colours, multiplied in many female characters, in many cross-sections of her heart, to represent the sacrifice of a woman faced with the violence of a conformist and bourgeois society.

The first stage of Traviata is the Teresa Carreño Theatre in Caracas, where it is scheduled on September 21 (8 pm).

After Venezuela, the tour continues in Peru, in Lima. Here Artemis Danza is guest of the Pirandello Theatre, where Traviata is scheduled on September 23, 24 and 25 (8 pm).

In Lima, the company will also conduct a masterclass addressed to Peruvian dance school students, dancers, and actors. The participants will study especially prepared choreographic inserts to take part as extras in a final scene of Traviata.

Moreover, Artemis Danza will also perform Il Circo di Fellini, a show full of games and colours designed for the youngest audience, in which dance re-creates that magical world loved by the Maestro to the tunes by Nino Rota (September 24, 4 pm).

The journey of Traviata goes on in Chile. The performance is on stage in Santiago in two different locations: on September 27 at the Centro Cultural San Ginés, on September 28 at the Centro Cultural de Puente Alto, where the company will also conduct a masterclass.

The last stage is in Uruguay, in Montevideo, where Traviata is presented at the Sala Verdi theatre on October 2nd.

The tour is supported by the Italian Cultural Institutes in Caracas, Lima, Santiago, and Montevideo and the Italian Ministry of Culture.
