Coreography: Enzo Celli
Fragile by Enzo Celli is a performance freely inspired by the diary of Vaslav Nijinsky. Characterized by a dreamy atmosphere, the setting of the story is an imaginary world that represents the great dancer’s mind at the peak of its madness. Dancers on stage are projections of the different states of Nijinsky’s madness. What happens on stage during the performance stems from madness and the latter gives birth to an exploration that get sorted into the absurd. Hilarity and poetry are together with madness, the basic elements that characterize this performance, while feelings as anger, loneliness, melancholy, vanity and the desire for omnipotence are the different facets of a personality in which everybody can be mirrored. So spectators sharing each other’s state of madness, have the possibility to catch that breath of art that they use to lose in their everyday lives.

Botega is a breeding ground of dancers coming from different formative experiences and sharing a strong disposition towards artistic research and the contamination of styles. Their leader Enzo Celli has always defined Botega Dance Company as a group of dancers characterized by the coexistence of different dancing styles. Botega Dance Company’s dancers technical background includes contemporary, ballet, break dance and hip-hop. Although Botega’s dancers follow a common artistic research based on the style contamination and the choreographic coherence, their own artistic nature has not been perverted.
