Ballet in Cinema: L'Altra Meta del Cielo (La Scala Ballet)
In l'altra metà del cielo ("The other side of the sky"), Martha Clarke, MacArthur "Genius Grant" winner and vital choreographer, takes on an usual challenge - staging a dance piece based on the music of aging Italian rock star Vasco Rossi, a man known for his drug use, racism, and misogyny. The resulting piece is nothing short of magical - Clarke transforms his lyrics of hatred into a piece that glorifies the feminine identity, rather than tear it down. This groundbreaking and unique work is presented by the La Scala Ballet.
