The Canticle of the Creatures, the exaltation of the sky

This project pays tribute to the Canticle of the Creatures of St. Francis of Assisi, the first poem written in Italian of which the sources are preserved. The project, imagined by Fabio Dolce and realized in collaboration with Antonino Ceresia, exalts a sensory explosion sprung from the encounter of different arts and tells the life of St. Francis and his poetry according to two main points of view: the sacred, through paintings and religious songs, and the profane (of the two artists) through dance and electronic music. Dance, song, painting, theater, lights and music come together for a moment of creative effervescence. The common denominator of the whole project is the bridge between traditional and modern arts. Re-evaluating the artistic heritage, the two Sicilian choreographers embrace the most experimental art forms in order to sensitize a heterogeneous public, exploring and enhancing an alert creative process, giving a new light to past works. The dance show develops between the paintings inspired by the Canticle of the Master Madè, and is immersed in a complex musical universe in which the electronic music of the composer Phanuel Erdmann alternates with the sublime voices of a choir accompanied by a piano and an oboe. The choristers and the musicians constitute a living scenography that throughout the show creates luminous installations.

Experimental HarpDance  

Experimental Harpdance is a project of experimental dance and music born from the collaboration between Giorgia Panasci, a Sicilian harpist, and the two choreographers Fabio Dolce and Antonino Ceresia. The performance is in constant development as its principle is precisely that of experimentation, dictated by the perpetual search for relationships: musician-instrument, instrument-sound, sound-dancer, dancer-body in movement, body in movement-musician. The choreographies created and interpreted by the two Sicilian artists give voice to a true dialogue between the actors involved, interchanging the scenic roles: the dancers identify themselves with the soul of the instrument and the latter dances with them. Everything revolves around sound experimentation, transforming traditional lyric instruments into more modern and daring elements of sound production, taking on a new form in contact with artists. Giorgia Panasci revolutionized the way we see and listen to her instrument during this collaboration. The careful production of Francesco Panasci Management engages in the communication and dissemination of this project, promoting the "made in Sicily" brand in Italy and abroad.

Ne Bouge Pas 

Ne Bouge Pas One step back, one big step: a fifteen year leap backwards. The duality of a man who faces his most beautiful and painful memory. A journey to the contrary, which highlights the two facets of this man, in contrast, sometimes helping each other and others agreeing in unison. A split man, a man who falls, who rises, who fights and who seeks support and love in this memory. The two dancers observe each other and stage their weaknesses, embodying the split of this man and all the confusion he lives. According to Antonino Ceresia, the interpretation of the two dancers represents the echo of the disturbing and sensual image of this woman who remains forever present. The choreographic creation is supported by the Klap Maison pour la dance in Marseille.

Red falling 

Cinque faccettature di una donna in cerca di un cambiamento fisico e mentale. Viaggio di una metamorfosi che si realizza con l'individualità di ogni artista, dando vita a una reazione a catena che si articola sul simbolismo della stella a cinque punte rappresentata da Leonardo Da Vinci (l'uomo vitruviano) che cerca di rompere con l’unità per diventare egocentrico.Il coreografo Antonino Ceresia, col supporto del suo collaboratore Fabio Dolce, sviluppa un gioco di reazioni a catena scaturito dall’elemento primo, che interagendo con le altre interpreti, innesca una ricerca degli elementi interpretativi che le caratterizzano.La creazione coreografica è stata supportata dall'Istituto francese di Palermo. In seguito alla prima di questo spettacolo, l'Accademia di Belle Arti di Palermo si è proposta per realizzare un film su Red Falling. 

Nel Blu

A man becomes a memory: does he live it? Suffer? Would you like to forget it or simply share fragments of your life with the world? A poem that speaks of a man of war, who lets himself be crossed by a river of images, and this water that washes him, will give him a new skin. This is the moment when change takes place, a moment of purification in which rebirth creates a new version of this man. Created on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the Made in Cannes festival under the direction of René Corbier and La Nuit des Etoiles in Mougins under the direction of Paola Cantalupo.

Opposite way

Opposite Way si traduce con un percorso che in fine sublima gli esseri conducendoli alla luce. Un Cammino ricco di incontri inaspettati e di scoperte d’altre dimensioni, d’idee, dell’altro. Una ricerca ispirata alla teoria della Terra Cava, un gioco intrigante e misterioso in cui vengono evidenziate le qualità interpretative dei cinque danzatori. Una scommessa con se stessi per raggiungere l'altra dimensione, un desiderio che scivola nel più profondo di ogni individuo e ne determina le azioni. Opposite way é stata creata nel 2013 per il ciclo DNSP de l'Ecole supérieure Nationale de danse de Marseille.


Assuming that the perception of the world according to the human being is partial, Antonino is interested in the body that creates the link between the essence of man and everything around him. The link between the soul and the concrete space.The world is a continuous alternation of ON and OFF and every experience comes from the nature of this binary formula. Perception is its fruit. All forms and phenomena of the universe express the ON and the OFF, and our senses are such that we can perceive the on and not the off. Yet without the OFF we would not experience the complexity of our perception.Antonino is immersed in a process that leads him to give light to the imperceptible: a game between the individual, the space and the material that surrounds him.A choreographic creation, two versions, a first female version, and later a masculine. Is it so different? Two distinct stories, but, in fact, not so much, not so unequal by all the others, yet the perception of the world, of the other, of life itself is so unique. ON / OFF can therefore be interpreted as the decoding of the transmission of a solo created initially for a woman to a man, with the aim of creating a unit of interpretation.All supported by a living scenographic creation made up of projected images that interact with the dancers who, thanks to the use of science, propose an unusual visual sensory journey to the spectators.The creation was supported by Le Transformateur in Allauch (FR), L'Espace Dantza in Pau (FR), La Fabrique Mimont in Cannes (FR), Scene 44 n + n Corsino in Marseille and subsidized by the PACA region south (FR) .
