Direction and choreography Enzo Cosimi

and 32 girls from the Catania’s dance schools
A lot has been said on The Swan Lake. In this first tranche of a trilogy dedicated to the famous ballet, I draw inspiration directly from this extraordinary Romantic story. OdetteOdile investigations is not truly a theatrical work, rather a spectacular environment inspired by the location where the story takes place. I look closely at the symbolism behind the “swan”, seen as a reincarnation of the feminine. Today’s feminine is a mix of old romanticism and new cynicism, glamour and attraction to death without pathos.
