Frankfurt Dresden Dance Company - Jacopo Godani

Frankfurt Dresden Dance Company ::Lapdance

The Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company invites the audience to get close. As in a rehearsal room, the performance space makes it possible for viewers to immerse themselves in the happenings onstage. Thanks to this intimacy, the audience becomes a part of the artistic process.

Jacopo Godani has created two radically different worlds in which dance and musical composition meet in a series of singular relationships. In Metamorphers and Satelliting two separate universes arise, defined by intimacy, refinement and finesse.


In Metamorphers, set to Béla Bartók’s String Quartet No. 4, Godani constructs a traditional choreographic work in which music, dance, rhythm and melody resonate as one. He makes the score’s puzzle visible. He playfully combines naturalness and spontaneity, using it to generate a vast reservoir of highly evolved choreographic material. Metamorphers is without doubt a musical creation in which dance becomes the music’s melody.

In Satelliting, an esthetic world of images, floating costumes, fragile lights, etheric creatures and magic moments comes alive in the dark, surrounding and simultaneously embracing the audience. Five parts of Johannes Schöllhorn’s subtle composition Anamorphoses provide Godani with a one-of-a-kind structure for conjuring up this exceptional atmosphere. The choreographer invites viewers to enter into a state of contemplation, allowing them to move forward together with his artistic vision.

LAPDANCE focuses on the audience’s experience. It presents an opportunity to perceive the details, take in the quintessential and experience refinement and finesse in close proximity to the artists.
