Quest for humanity

Each year, Danse Danse supports artists by making rehearsal spaces available, thereby allowing them to deepen several aspects of their creative work. Choreographer Virginie Brunelle, will be in residence at Théâtre Maisonneuve at Place des Arts.

The creation is invested with the theme of the first edition of the festival, reviving the symbolism of Monte Verità. This famous mountain, which overlooks the LAC (Lugano Art e Cultura) theater, was the cradle at the beginning of the 20th century of micro-societies of artists, philosophers and scientists who initiated major social transformations. Today it echoes the crying need for utopia, hope and humanity.
