This year Between the Seas brings new works by Nejla Yatkin, ASMED/Balletto di Sardegna and Mersiha Mesihovic/Circuit Debris.
What Dreams May Come is a new multi media solo dance piece by award winning Turkish choreographer Nejla Yatkin in part supported by the Turkish Cultural Foundation. Set to music by Turkish composers Ahmed Saygun and Kamran Ince, this new solo dance explores the intersection and connection between East and West through movement, space, form, light and shadow.
Aragosta: The new production by ASMED - Balletto di Sardegna carries on its work of research around the great non-conformist Italian stylist of the thirties, Elsa Schiaparelli, began last year. Nowadays Elsa Schiaparelli still inspires many generations of contemporary artists not only in Italy but also at an international level. This time, the reflection takes shape in ARAGOSTA, a completely new piece enriched with surprising concepts and abstract expression codes. The new choreography stems from that unstoppable pulse to create and express oneself at all costs and despite everything; in spite of the imposed cultural roles, the crushing social conventions and the timeless conflict between the natural and social being.
I am and Dissonance by M. Mesihovic/Circuit Debris: With strength and emotional complexity played out to gritty, percussive yet ambiguous sounds created by Paul Matthis in collaboration with Mesihovic "I am" brings us face to face with the surreal and raw nature of our existence where we can only but once again be astonished with the Inconceivability of our reality. Dissonance explores a perverse position: that the sense of despair Mesihovic associates with her native Bosnia and Herzegovina is fertile ground for the extreme joy expressed in the region’s art. The work express the relationship between despair and joy and the contradictions of being human. It is loaded with sad, amusing and shocking events that challenge our values and question our perception of what is normal.
