CZD2 – giovane compagnia zappalà danza


Created in 2009 for the Dutch structures Foundation Theaterwerkplaats General Oost and ArtEZ Arnhem and for Pergine Spettacolo Aperto, Corpo Cage stimulated the interest of Roberto Zappalà in exploring the music of John Cage who has always been for the choreographer inspiring of dialogue space-body very crystalline and pure. On the occasion of the Dutch debut, the music was specially created by Paula Matthausen, who, with a very personal research, links up with Cage in the timbre exploration.

The CZD2 is the young zappalà danza company, composed by dancers selected from the MoDem PRO program. The young ensemble increasingly proves to be a valid creative tool for the new generation of choreographers, who, supported by our National Dance Production Center, show a special interest in employing the young dancers of the CZD2, possessing excellent technical qualities as well as sensitivity and vigor, indispensable sources in the new dynamics and creative methodologies.
