The decision of including Erodiade — Fame di Vento (Julie Ann Anzilotti’s Compagnia XE, 1993) in the programme of the RIC.CI Project stems from the expressive power of Stéphane Mallarmé’s unfinished poem Hérodiade. Herodias, or Salome, is portrayed in her immense solitude, but taken towards catharsis after the beheading of St John the Baptist. The scenes, signed by famous conceptual artist Alighiero Boetti, are the hallmark of a period when collaborations between different disciplines were the norm: their tasteful elegance gives the mix an exceptional authoritativeness. Choreographies are enhanced by the musicality of Gabriella Bartolomei’s voice and words, and by the delightful scores, especially Paul Hindemith’s.
