The theme of ORLANDO, “in Love or Furious”, is the first section of the trilogy of civilizations proposed by the Egri Foundation, a stage path that will develop between 2015 and 2017. Inspired by three literary and mythical male figures (Orlando, Faust, Prometheus) and taking their cue from the relevant subjects belonging to the great European Literature, the trilogy proposes new readings addressing some scoring themes of ethics and society of Today, through contemporary dance.
The “Human Wilderness”, the conflicting feelings, the merits and defects of a declining age and the cultural differences are the basis of this first choreographic project. In fact, in a multiethnic there emerge conflicts, unexpected contaminations and progressive additions: this is at the base of ORLANDO, a patchwork of actions, reactions and emotions.
Raphael Bianco, in addition to being the artificer, has bravely assumed the risk of representing himself on stage the synthesis of the various disciplines, while his dancers depict a multiplicity of roles, in addition to the canonical characters of Orlando, Angelica, Medoro, Ruggero and Bradamante.
