Silvia Gribaudi’s choreographic language combines dance and theatre, focusing on the social impact of the body and the relationship with the audience. Graces is inspired by the neo-classical sculpture The Three Graces, created by Antonio Canova between 1812 and 1817 and a universal reference for beauty, proportion and measure. Clad only in socks and underwear, Gribaudi and three male Apollos seek new meanings for the word “grace.” They playfully transgress the canons associated with beauty —whether in ancient sculpture, the circus or the music hall—the better to dismiss them in the iconoclastic postures, dances and situations they explore with finesse and humour. Voted best show of the year by Italy’s Danza & Danza magazine at its premiere, this is a whirlwind of a dance, a love-at-first-sight experience, utterly delightful
