Sakura Blues closes a trilogy dedicated to the cherry tree land, which began with Kafka on the Shore, danced translation of Murakami’s work carried on with Kaze Mononoke, a journey in the wind inspired by Miyazaki, the great master.
Presented with an innovative and strongly metropolitan technical language, thought up and experienced as an Anime, Sakura Blues is an affectionate, painful, ironic wander taken in the secret soul of women, perfumed and soft just as snowflakes.
The work comes out from the real need to communicate the poetic, struggling sense of nostalgia, of tenderness bound to memories, feelings that inexorably link together each and every human being. The unceasing dialogue between dancers and public becomes a bound experienced through eyes and soul.

DaCru Dance Company
The DaCru project started in 1996, with the artistic joint venture between Marisa Ragazzo and Omid Ighanì, the most representative choreographers among the italian urban dance scene.
Experimentation is the philosophy that leads them to create an urban dance avant-garde, mixing styles, codes and gestures of suburban dances to the concept of theater as a physical space. In this marginal land, the two choreographers bring a new path for urban theater to life, extending to anything hip hop contamination may involve, blending the hip hop technical gesture together with house dance, contemporary dance, jazz rock and innovative breaking.
