So please get involved with the project by supporting our Indiegogo campaign!
This week the cast and crew have been together at Il Palmerino. Choreographer, dancer, and actor, Elisa Barucchieri of ResExtensa company, and her dancers arrived from Bari. We’ve put together a short video of the primo prove – the first rehearsal – to give you glimpse of the first stages of the process. And hopefully there’s no spoilers!
Our cast includes Italian actor Alessio Montagnani (The Young Pope, All the Money in the World) as Satan. Alessio is a dynamic and thoughtful actor, and has been involved in the creative process since he came on board.
The Orchestra of Passions have been brought together by the Associazione Culturale il Palmerino and will play an important role in The Ballet. They are a multi-generational, international group of non-professional actors and volunteers who have brought Lee’s emotions to life. Oh, and the Orchestra also includes a poodle called Tilly.
With The Ballet being a site-specific performance, and with the Firenze primavera being so beautiful, we have obviously been rehearsing outside!
