This is a video excerpt from Quattro Maggiore: Adi Da Samraj per Vivaldi, performed by the Florence Dance Company on July 9, 2013 at the Bargello National Museum in Florence.
The choreography (by director Keith Ferrone) takes the dancers through four inspired selections of Vivaldi's masterpiece, Quattro Maggiore (The Four Seasons). The four changes of season are accompanied by changes in the colors of Adi Da's Image-Art, costumes, and lighting.
Quattro Maggiore: Adi Da Samraj per Vivaldi will be featured in an upcoming video release and will be further developed for performances in 2014.
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.
