PRICE OF THE MINISTER OF CULTURE 2017 ALDA GREOLI

Cartoon is a dance piece created specifically for children (6 years and older) and their families.

In this surrealistic tale, four characters get possessed by their inner creative demons producing a nonsensical and fun swirl of dance, music and games.  The abundance of stories constructed give a glimpse into the complex and confusing function of the mind: full of twists and turns, growths and setbacks, dead-ends and infinite possibilities.      

Carried away by a magnificent web of sounds, the characters engage in grandiose tirades and bewitched dances to pop music and classical arias.  The soundtrack is an epic adventure that includes centuries-old scores from Bach and Mozart that continue to touch the heart.

Something like a happy mess, at times Cartoon is as serious as a love declaration, while other times as light as a breeze.
