Performance synopsis

DANCING DIVINE COMEDY is an ambitious attempt to grapple with the work by Dante, who in the fourteenth century created his vision of the extraterrestrial world. It is strong enough to have survived for generations and still have its impact today. It is an impression that touches upon individual themes rather than an attempt to delve into them. It is a challenge for the choreographer and the dancers trying to translate the complicated language of Dante's poetry, saturated with exuberant visual images, into the language of dance.
