Italian KinesiS to open Black Box Festival in PlovdivEuropost
The Italian group KinesiS Contemporary Dance Company will open the 15th edition of the Black Box Festival of contemporary dance, which will be held in the city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, from 29 June to 4 July 2021, the Italian Institute of Culture in Sofia announced.
It is a project that was officially created in 2012 from an idea of Angelo Egarese and Elena Salvestrini. The young Florentine troupe, born out of a desire to express its concept of contemporary dance, turned into a professional company where research and experimentation join in a unique and increasingly indistinguishable communication, which offers the audience a boundless change of the means of cultural expression and continuous evolution of choreography and performing arts.
Since 2017, the artistic management has been entrusted to Angelo Egarese, who is choreographer of the company, and since 2018, Lucia Scaccabarozzi has been engaged in the organisation of its events. Since 2019, the company's activities have been supported by the region of Tuscany, and since 2020 - by the CR Foundation in Florence.
