Aterballetto

Aterballetto is the principal producing and touring dance company in Italy. It is also the first permanent ballet-producing organisation apart from Opera House companies. Founded in 1979, it is composed of solo dancers capable of performing in various dance styles.
Aterballetto has gained wide recognition on the international scene.
After almost 18 years of direction by Amedeo Amodio, the artistic direction was entrusted to Mauro Bigonzetti from 1997 to 2007. Bigonzetti, a notable international choreographer, renewed the artistic identity of the Company giving it an international profile.
In February 2008, Mauro Bigonzetti left the artistic direction to dedicate more time to his creative talent and became Aterballetto’s principal choreographer. The artistic direction was entrusted to CRISTINA BOZZOLINI, a former prima ballerina of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.
Aterballetto has taken the profile of a contemporary ballet company. The founding element of its artistic identity is the commitment to supporting and developing the art of choreography and the absolute language of dance, intended as dynamics and forms in space, an embodiment of expressive and aesthetic reverberations, and as a dialectic with music.
Throughout its recent history, thanks to the valuable contribution of Mauro Bigonzetti and of Italian and international choreographers who have collaborated with the Company – including Jiri Kylian, William Forsythe, Ohad Naharin, Iztik Galili, Fabrizio Monteverde, Jacopo Godani, and Eugenio Scigliano – this commitment has become stronger and the artistic decisions have been motivated especially by the need and curiosity of exploring the various expressions of contemporary choreographic language.
Aterballetto believes in research - that begins from a ‘disciplined’ body that has a strong ballet technique - to discover the potentials of movement and dynamics and to make them an expression of contemporary reality, by means of the original vision of choreographers who interpret today’s reality through their imagination, taste, experiences, and human vision.
It is a unique and original experience for the choreographer and the performers, which arrives directly to the audience.
All this has been made possible thanks to the insight of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, of the Emilia-Romagna Region and of A.T.E.R. (Association of Theaters in Emilia-Romagna).
