Influx (Rain Ross Dance Company, USA/Lebanon) / Per...Inciso (Esperimenti Dance Company, Italy) (double bill)

Transition between cultures. Dance moves between. Masses crossing borders. Influx is the cross-cultural dance collaboration between Nadra Assaf (Lebanon) and Rain Ross (USA), with music composed by Martin Loyato (Argentina). Dancers from the USA and Lebanon perform with live musicians from Lebanon, showcasing narratives of community and exchange, of fluidity and discovery.

Italian songs of the 60s and 90s are the protagonist in Per...Inciso, a sparkling, entrertaining work by one of Italy's most up and coming companies. From Modugno to Sinatra, from De Andrè to Gaber, from Capossela to Jovanotti the 7 dancers bring together, using irony and humour, different generations with sometimes similar experiences and emotions.

The company uses its signature style of combining a variety of genres – hip hop, contemporary etc -- to reconcile-young and old, tradition and innovation with a new, personal, dramaturgical language, lightweight and profound at the same time.
