Lapitskaya, Cingolani, Hamilton: Jane’s Solstice
Performance of dance, voice and text
International group of dance artists will come to Caisa’s stage to present their newest work of dance, voice and text. Interlacing of unique moments and poetry of the immediate, Jane’s Solstice brings to light the subtle aspect of dance and text. The whole essence of the piece is articulated and developed in this transformation from the invisible to the visible, from the implicit to the explicit.
From the bottom of darkness we smell glimmer
From the bowels of the earth we hear peaks calling us to climb
We crown our gods on even days
And dethrone them on odd ones
We’ll get somewhere
If time only has mercy on us
And there we’ll celebrate and sing our pagan songs…
Concept, dance, text: Vera Lapitskaya, Paolo Cingolani, Julyen Hamilton
Production: NotaBene art group, Caisa cultural center
