Frankfurt Dresden Dance Company - Jacopo Godani

Frankfurt Dresden Dance Company ::PREMONITIONS OF A LARGER PLAN


Which reference points can young artists – and young people in general – use as a guide for their own development? That question has long been a driver for Jacopo Godani in his work with the company. His mission, as an artistic credo, has illuminated his work again and again: raising awareness of art’s timeless beauty, but also of the extraordinary feats that talented people dedicated to their own personal development can achieve – as an enrichment and an incentive to reach new heights. Godani’s latest work provides insights into this process of becoming an artist, and does so from different perspectives – that of dance as well as music. Exceptional young musicians therefore team up with the Company to show how young people can make their dreams come true by focusing completely on their art.
