The show will be held at the Out Off Theater, Via Mac Mahon 16, 20155 Milan.
Istituto Svizzero is pleased to collaborate with the Danae Festival (XXIII edition, Milan 26.09-24.10.2021), supporting the national premiere of Ioannis Mandafounis' Faded.
Ioannis Mandafounis returns to Danae Festival with his bursting energy in a dance solo that will close his experience on stage. In his presentation we read that at the end of a dancer's career one must face reality: the body, exhausted by technical needs, must resist the decline until the last fall of the curtain.
In Faded, the artist returns to his first love, ballet, and pays homage to it by performing a marathon of ten male solos (“variations”). His accomplice on stage the talented actress Antigone Frida in a dialogue between music and dance.
This act, of disarming simplicity, is the last bow on the stage of the Greek-Swiss choreographer, which reveals the daily struggle that lies behind the art of dance.
