Would you like some Naples?

THE FESTIVAL of Italian culture Dolce Vitaj every year brings a host of events connected with this country to Slovakia.

Pina… Why Not Naples! by the Movimentoinactor Teatrodanza theatre(Source: Courtesy of Italian Culture Institute)

In June, the dance/body theatre performance Pina… Why Not Naples! of the Movimentoinactor Teatrodanza theatre brought to the Elledanse theatre in Bratislava – as one of the last performances before this venue closes and will only offer guest performances elsewhere – a smell, touch, taste of the south-Italian metropolis, Naples.

The name of the piece (premiered in 2012 in Naples – naturally) is an allusion, playing with “why the dancer/choreographer Pina Bausch who dedicated a lot of her works to global cities, has not found inspiration in this one, when it is so stimulating and provoking”? the bulletin explains.

The director of the work, Flavia Bucciero, is a Naples native herself, and the “homage á Pina Bausch and Naples” she created shows in a very funny, playful and captivating way all the ups and downs, dos and don’ts, likes and dislikes of the life and living in the capital of the Campania region, as seen and perceived by four young people (danced by Sabrina Davini, Samuele De Luca, Daniele Dei Bandecca and Laura Feresin, featuring also F. Bucciere).  

Pina… Why Not Naples! presented in Elledanse on the evening of June 20, not only entertained and emotionally captured the audience, but it also provoked some after-thoughts, as most good theatre pieces do.
