Excelsior

Associate artist of the Oriente Occidente Festival, Salvo Lombardo has re-created, through 21st century eyes, the Gran Ballo Excelsior, the title given to the phenomenon of late nineteenth century ballet repertoire that  was born at a time when national identity and its imaginary points of reference  were so crucial. Lombardo tries to rethink the title in terms of what still survives today of that prototype of   modernity in the representation of “others”, in body design and in the negotiation of relationships between Europe and the “rest of the world”.
