"Pier Paolo Suite" with Glauco Venier - piano, Alba Nacinovich - voice, Marcello Allulli - sax, Francesco Diodati - guitar, dancers from COMPAGNIA AREAREA and actors from ASSOCIAZIONE ARTI FRAGILI.
The show Pier Paolo Suite, with original music composed in dedication to the cantor of primroses by Glauco Venier, composer-pianist from Friuli of international fame, who for this special occasion will be joined by the talented jazz-voice of Alba Nacinovich, singer from Fiume, the saxophones of Marcello Allulli and the guitar of Francesco Diodati. This particular quartet was given the task of transforming a score in the form of a suite into a sound evocation, based on some Friulian lyrics by the young Pier Paolo and other authors. Authors who, like Federico Tavan, Amedeo Giacomini and Novella Cantarutti, were differently influenced by Pasolini's example and personalised the poetic model. On the music by Glauco Venier, conceived to transfer into sound evocation a score in the form of a Suite, the Compagnia Arearea will create a contemporary dance choreography, to which will be added a dramaturgy with readings by the Associazione Arti Fragili, bringing on stage young actors and dancers, for an innovative and contemporary compositional effort.
