This creation with no plot is a mere choreographic gesture developing freely into numerous dynamic associations without any logical path. The "Game" evokes feelings and images, the technique used in Impressions of Africa by Raymond Roussel. This "Gala," in an imaginary forest, shows the individual talent of the dancers, changing the logical sequence of the steps and surprising the audience.
About the Artists
Aterballetto was founded seven years ago by the association after which it was named -the Association of Theatres of Emilia Romagna. A.T.E.R. includes six traditional theaters in the Emilia Romagna region, at Reggio Emilia, Modena, Parma, Ravenna, Fcrrara, and Piacenza. The company is in the forefront of Italy's dance scene, and is noted for its high artistic standards and varied repertoire which includes works by Bournonville, Balanchine, Alvin Ailcy, Glen Tetley, Antony Tudor, Leonide Massine, Roland Petit, and Amedeo Amodio. The dancers, selected from various schools in Italy and abroad, give over 130 performances annually in Italy and have toured in France, England, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and East Germany. Their performances in Ann Arbor this weekend are part of their debut North American tour.
Amedeo Amodio has been artistic director of Aterballetto since 1979. Before that, he danced with, and choreographed for, La Scala, Opera of Rome, the City of Bologna, and the Spoleto Festival. Amodio's interests in contemporary music, cinema, theatre, and literature have formed his individual artistic approach for the foundation and development of Aterballetto -"fast becoming the most impressive (ballet company) in Italy . . . Italy's first National Ballet." Dance Magazine
