La Morte del Cigno – Introdans
By Vincenzo Turiano
In La Morte del Cigno, the Italian choreographer Mauro de Candia gives a strong male interpretation of The Dying Swan, the short solo that made the famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova immortal. This swan is a stubborn, proud beast that tries to make its way towards freedom with enormous animal strength, passion and flexibility. Dancer Vincenzo Turiano from Introdans performs this special dance solo in a phenomenal way.
