New Dance Drama Presents
Deux à Tiroir
Choreography Emanuela Tagliavia
Dancers Alice Mariani, Gabriele Corrado
Music Giampaolo Testoni
The duet created for Alice Mariani and Gabriele Corrado, principal dancers at Teatro alla Scala, draws inspiration from the sculpture “Femme à Tiroir” by Salvador Dalì. The “Tiroir” represents a secret, mysterious, drawer, a space that hides or protects a truth, a thought, a memory, or a feeling.
Through the “drawers”, which our body also possesses, we explore the states of mind that unite and distance the two performers in solos and duets throughout the fragmented score of their performance, a mirror of the complexity of the human being and its multiple and changing identities, as in Pirandello’s poetic and restless vision…

“An outstanding display of mental breakdown”
Majbrit Hjelmsbo, Weekendavisen
Maria Kochetkova is so intense that it hurts”
Henriette Devantier, Sceneblog
“The mix of physical meltdown and verbal explosion with Schubert’s romantic aesthetic seems just as surprising as it makes sense, when the subject is different ways we kill one another and each others dreams”
Majbrit Hjelmsbo, Weekendavisen
MART Foundation USA Presents
Hard to Tell
New Duet by Shahar Binyamini
Dancers Marion Barbeau, Antonin Monié.
‘When we dance together, these moments we share – It is hard to tell and it’s beautiful this way’.
In his new work, Binyamini continues to explore the nature of growth and its embodiment, at different levels, in the dancing body.
It is hard to tell and feel when a growth process begins, but we can experience it in an instant, at any given moment.
And like dancing – it appears and disappears .
The piece is a surrender to a journey towards the great force of change. The same force that makes us the unique entities we are – A vulnerable entity that adapts itself to any situation, that is in a constant process of evolution.
My hope is that the piece – as a collection of moments, can be a celebration of these processes, each time a new celebration.

Costumes Harmony la moda nella danza – Vittorio Piccininni
A creative exploration into the mysterious impetus behind Beethoven’s famous Love Letter. In Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Book X, a sculptor named Pygmalion creates and then falls in love with Galatea, an ivory statue embodying his ideal woman. The Goddess of Love, Venus, answers his prayers and brings that statue to life.
Shortly after Beethoven’s death, in a secret drawer in his Vienna apartment a ten-page pencil draft of his letter to an “Immortal Beloved” was discovered. Scholars still cannot agree on who the mysterious recipient might have been. But let us imagine, just like in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, that Beethoven’s inspiration was an Ideal, a coalescence of different women, thus creating the perfect muse for his immortal music.
