Elisabetta Terabust

Born in Varese in 1946, Terabust trained at the Opera di Roma ballet school and became étoile at the Rome Opera House in 1972. She is the VIP 2007 of the Italian ballet world. Recently appointed director of La Scala Company, to start on 1st September 2007, she takes over from Frédéric Olivieri, who has been appointed director of the Milanese ballet school following the retirement of Anna Maria Prina.
It is the second time Terabust has taken the helm at the Scala Company.

She previously resigned from the same position after four years (1993-1997), during which she discovered and promoted such talented young dancers as Roberto Bolle and Massimo Murru.

We watch a body as it sweats, exudes its aura, attracts or repels us. Theatre is a carnivorous medium, feeding on bodies. Bodies out of control. Bodies oblivious to rules, naïvely arousing their own lust....

Hofesh Shechter

His work “Uprising” is a powerful piece for seven men. All-male dances can be a tricky choice: too camp, too symbolic, too macho, too predictable, too boring. Shechter presented a “revolution” done by men looking sexy, making a post-modernist aesthetic statement – and a highly enjoyable one. Furthermore, despite references to the physicality and speed of Ohad...


«Denn das ist die Zeit, die Zahl der Bewegung in Bezug auf das Früher und Später.« In dieser klassischen Bestimmung der Zeit drückt Aristoteles (im 3. Buch seiner «Physik») zugleich die Grundlage aller Zeitmessung und eine fundamentale Einsicht des philosophischen Nachdenkens über die Zeit aus: Dass diese uns niemals «rein» als solche begegnet, sondern immer nur in...
