choreography and direction Micha van Hoecke
live music performed by Pink Floyd Legend

world premiere


Van Hoecke in a lunar realm accompanied by Pink Floyd: this is the voyage on which Micha promises to take us in this, his latest show that debuts in Ravenna. The Russo-Belgian choreographer draws his inspiration from the psychedelic sound of the legendary band and of their song, Shine on You Crazy Diamond, in which Roger Waters and the other members honoured their lead singer Syd Barrett who had lost himself in the meanders of mental illness. But in Shine, folly is transfigured and becomes fey magic, a journey backwards into Micha’s own youth made up of rock and dancing. Under his direction Compagnia Daniele Cipriani together with Pink Floyd Legend, the Italian group that “doubles” to acclaim its British parent, paint for us a moving image of poetic apparitions, a dream that imparts hope.
