Creation and presentation of Otello Circus, lyric opera with disabled young musicians of AllegroModerato and young actors-dancers of Accademia Arte della Diversità.
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
“Joining two poetic universes, two missions, two identities in a unique, common cultural, ethical and poetical project that aims to give back an identity and professionalism to disadvantaged actors, dancers and musicians.” To give people with disabilities places and opportunities for artistic expression by narrowing the gap between music and theatre. To raise awareness among the public about the culture of inclusion by overturning the collective imagination that sees disability as an insurmountable limit for artistic and human expression.
Approximately 20 young actors, dancers and musicians with mental or physical disabilities of the Accademia Arte della Diversità and the AllegroModerato Orchestra. Audience attending the shows.
For some time the Accademia Arte Della Diversità in Bolzano (with theatre) and the AllegroModerato Orchestra in Milano (with music) have been working to give voice and opportunity for artistic expression to people with mental and physical disabilities.
The two companies, supported by AMI, created an ambitious lyrical theatrical opera based on Giuseppe Verdi’s and William Shakespeare’s Othello in an abridged version of the work that conveys its drama, meaning and theatrical and musical content. The professional workshop in the art of opera theatre involveed all the ‘disadvantaged’ actors of the Art of Diversity Academy and the musicians of the AllegroModerato Orchestra and included artistic collaborations with major Italian choreographers and playwrights.
The rehearsals and the staging took place in two joint artistic residencies (September 3-9, 2017 and from May 21 to June 10 2018) in Olinda (link to the project) in Milan. The Opera is performed in a small circus tent with the ring as the stage and the audience seated on the surrounding grandstand. Othello is a great circus of human sentiments, in which the characters display their emotions in the form of circus arts.
In 2019, Otello Circus went on national tour at the Teatro Comunale in Bolzano and as part of the Napoli Teatro Festival at the Court of the Royal Palace of Naples.
Between the 25th and the 27th of February 2022, the Otello Circus is presented in Rome with 4 performances at the Spazio Rossellini. A public meeting is also planned to make a final assessment of the Otello Circus experience with the involvement of third sector associations, institutions and foundations, with reflections on the contributions offered by the project to Culture, Social policies, integration projects. work and possible new perspectives
