DUEL The Third Generation
Terza Generazione is the last of three chapters of the project Duel, which looks into the relationship between individual and Myth and is inspired by The Book of Genesis.Duel is separated into three different acts, each one – the first, second and third – independent and separate from one to another. This third and last act sees the Company Abbondanza/Bertoni I B A M B I N I on stage and is performed by nine extremely young dancers (from ages 8 to 14), little generous and brave artists who take over from us and lead a way to the future.
One in front the other, they are listening and moving; creating a meeting and a collision in relation to a totem to be adored and to be overthrown. Visual Art meets Performing Art, wood meets flesh. Contemplation and motion are in search for a possible relationship and synergy between two distinct works of art: one material and wooden, the other human and biological.

Michele Abbondanza e Antonella Bertoni
From the experience of Alwin Nikolais school in New York, the studies with Dominique Dupuy, the poetic improvisations by Carolyn Carlson in France and the study and practice of Zen, Michele Abbondanza (co-founder of the Sosta Palmizi group and teacher at the “Piccolo di Milano” Drama school) and Antonella Bertoni founded their “Compagnia Abbondanza/Bertoni”. This company is known as one of the most prolific dance theatre companies within the Italian scene for its productions, its teaching and pedagogical work as well as for the diffusion of the contemporary Dance Theatre.
