about

Music composed and played live at the Theatre by Joao De Bruco and Roderik Vanderstraeten.


The multimedia dance show Dolomytica, signed by Jean Christophe Blavier and Chiara Tanesini, was created for the International Year of the Mountains (2002). Divided into choreographic scenes inspired by myths and legends of the Dolomites, the show pays a tribute to the mountain sagas, the world of ghosts and the heroes of the ladin valleys. It depicts characters from the popular imaginary such as King Laurino, Dolasilla, the Nebelfrauen (misty women) and the Stoanernen Mandern (stone men), drawing inspiration also from literary works such as the Catinaccio fairytales and Die ersten Menschen waren Stein by Anita Pichler. Central figure of the work is an old man, who reflects upon himself and his life and goes back to his memories digging up old tales and legends of his past, depositories of an ancient wisdom, now sank into oblivion.

Dolomytica is a journey into the discovery of mountain mythology, invented and lost within decades, now re-proposed in a new style, made accessible through the artists’ creativity and expressive talent; a journey through the ladin valleys, where the ancient wisdom comes back to life and recovers its dignity of timeless truth in the transposition of the multimedia language.
