The Garden of Hesperides. The Dance of Energies

For the 2016 Edition of the Event, ABenergie proposes the culture of theatre with a spectacular show in the style of the Teatro Tascabile di Bergamo (TTB) which addresses artistic creation. An elaboration on theatrical actions which comprises all the characteristics of  poetry (energy, rhythm, musicality, rhetoric, etc), allowing the spectator to unveil that which is already there and alive in a place far away, somewhere outside of ourselves and of the observer.


The waltz

Specialists in open air performances and in special projects (such as the reopening ceremony of the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo in 2015), the TTB offers a suite built around a mythical category of European social culture: the waltz.
The elements involved in this dance can be considered anthropological and cosmological (the turning as hypnotic bewilderment, but also in Pythagorean terms as the rotation of the celestial spheres), social and historical.

A “Dance of Energies”, “ergon”, or “capacity to act, force in action” is a chain of accelerators, as in physics, leading to higher and higher energies and producing the almost hypnotic state of the waltz. These calculations developed by the artistic work are capable of filling the space on all possible plains and at all levels of perspective; in depth and height. The actors, in evening gowns in perfect Viennese style bring alive a series of great waltzes to the notes of Strauss, Massenet, Sarazate and Puccini. A triumph of lightness, of the sparkle of glances and smiles which we identify with the popular myth of the waltz.
Stilts, now a classic accessory of outdoor theatre, magnify the concert; dresses of tulle and tuxedos offer a dreamlike and fairytale feeling.

The show will take place in the evenings of 15th, 16th, and 17th September at 9:00 pm. There will be a single show on each evening lasting for approximately 15 minutes.
