When the flush of a newborn sun fell first on Eden's green and gold,Our father Adam sat under the Tree and scratched with a stick in the mold; And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart, Till the Devil whispered behind the leaves: "It's pretty, but is it Art?" (Rudyard Kipling)
Contemporary is the one who keeps his eye fix on its time to perceive not light, but darkness. Contemporary is the one who receive on his face the ray of darkness which comes from its time.(Giorgio Agamben)
25 young dancers and musicians present a live performance where different artistic languages and styles, from jazz to hip hop, from modern to pop, come together in an expressive melting pot that plays with the form of the musical suite.
Summer Suite is the work-show concluding the Summer School Application Forms (25/06-09/07/2011), two intense weeks of creative workshops and of interdisciplinary research between dance and music, starting from a shared elaboration of the original music score.
Next to the young artists of the Florentine territory, the presence of more experienced musicians and of peer coaches from the European network Roots&Routes, will enlarge the confrontation to the Summer Schools taking place in Greece, Spain and Hungary for Roots&Routes Follow-up: an action-research project addressing non-formal and informal learning in artistic contexts in Europe, coordinated by the University of Barcelona and supported by the Lifelong Learning programme of the European Union.
