Le Supplici Contemporary Dance Company Performs @ the CCP

The Le Supplici Contemporary Dance Company of Italy will be in the Philippines for a performance and workshop under the auspices of the Italian Embassy and the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP).

Le Supplici will perform at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater) on May 23 at 8 PM. They will hold a workshop on May 24-26, at 3PM - 7PM at the Myra Beltran Dance Forum Studio.

At the CCP, the group will present Cartografia Disabitata (Uninhabited Cartography) choreographed by Fabrizio Favale, founder of Le Supplici.

“Cartografia,” as Le Supplici describes it, “is a work that gets into an imaginary ancient atlas, where we meet the archipelagos of similar but also different forms, and where we meet places of jagged multitudes and mutations of images. The result is something surprising, because in these dances, the dancer is struggling with something that was there and now it’s gone…It’s a dance with ghosts.”

Franciscan cartographer Vincenzo Coronelli, known for the terrestrial and celestial globes he created for Louis XIV provided the inspiration for Le Supplici’s work Isolario, of which Cartografia Disabitata is a part of.

At the Le Supplici workshop, participants will experience Le Supplici’s choreographic style and spirit of experimentation. The group will guide participants in creating their own personal choreographic moves.

Film screenings of "Roccu" and "Un ricamo fatto sul nulla" featuring the choreographic pieces of Fabrizio Favale as performed by Le Supplici are scheduled on June 28, 2012 at the University of the Philippines.
