Presented as a preview in October 2017 at the MilanOltre Festival and debuted in May 2019 at the LAC in Lugano, The Rain Sequence opens up a research horizon linked to meteorology and to the presentiment in the world of animals.
A work that transversally crosses the techniques of classical ballet to project itself into an invention of an unclassifiable language.
The choreography consists of fixed sequences based on accuracy, which the dancers disassemble and reassemble at will, creating canons, variations and intertwining of dance sequences to create a long sequence of 33 minutes that tends to infinity.
The scene presents a wind and light machine that refers to an iridescent space dense with clouds, a scenographic and lighting work conceived by the duo First Rose. The backdrop swells with the wind emitted by industrial fans, which also emit the basic sound of the choreographic work, and emits iridescent and multi-reflective light.
