Sydney Choreographic Ensemble in Association with
Riverside Theatres Presents
A New Contemporary Ballet by Francesco Ventriglia
We run and stand still. We fall and rise again. We dance alone and with others. Our movement is gloriously human, with every moment personal and made anew. And yet we are at the same time forever subject to the strict laws of physics. It’s a mystery.
In his new work Galileo, Francesco Ventriglia takes the great 16th century scientist’s discoveries about motion and puts them to the ravishing music of Baroque giants Vivaldi, Scarlatti, Pergolesi and Monteverdi. Theory becomes flesh and blood as the raw material of speed, freefall, trajectory and inertia is transformed into emotion and startling beauty.
Last year Ventriglia’s Sydney Choreographic Ensemble dazzled audiences and critics alike with the world premiere of GRIMM at Riverside Theatres Parramatta. Galileo promises an equally thrilling experience as the exquisite dancers of Sydney Choreographic Ensemble breathe life into an unforgettable meditation about how we walk upon this earth.
