This brief video clip presents some highlights from Part 1 of the three-part ballet, Not-Two Is Peace, from the March 15, 2013 performance in Florence, Italy. The complete ballet is 1 hour and 20 minutes in length. It was choreographed by Keith Ferrone. The art of Adi Da Samraj is displayed in monumental projections of beautiful geometries, color, and light, at times animated along with the dance. The searing, original music score by Andrea Portera is lifted to new heights with the addition of a female vocal ensemble, Trio Canora.
In this video clip, Benedetta, Egle, Angelo, and Ylenia of the Florence Dance Company grace the stage of Italy's palatial theater setting, Teatro della Pergola. Part 1 of the ballet is performed by 1 male dancer and 3 female dancers — at times reminiscent of Balanchine's 1928 Apollo.
The Florence Dance Company prepares and performs at the Pergola Theatre, Florence, in the March 2013 performances of Not-Two Is Peace. Accompanied by interviews with some of the dancers and members of the public responding to the performance.
A few scenes from the preparation at the Teatro della Pergola in Florence on March 14, 2013. Some views of the famous old theatre itself. The use of back projection for the video produces very crisp images of Adi Da's art, without the projection being interrrupted by the dancers (who would stand between the projector and the lower part of the screen in a traditional forward projection system).
