A medieval village in the heart of Campania, in Cairano, in the province of Avellino, to bring together young budding artists from all over Italy and beyond. An intensive week (from 24 to 30 July, 50 hours of lessons, two groups of students) to rediscover vocations and theatrical passions. At the start duepuntozero, the project signed by the director and choreographer Giuliano Peparini, which this year will take place in a fascinating location rich in history and memories, less than 300 inhabitants. “An intense week of lessons, meetings, study and planning that young people will experience sur place. A sort of summer school, although I would rather compare it to a sort of football retreat. Maximum concentration, beauty, absolute quiet”, he anticipates at Ruetir Giuliano Peparini, one of our greatest international artists, synonymous with grandeur and exceptionalism.
Not a random choice, that of Cairano, the city where Franco Dragone, soul and founder of Cirque du Soleil was born, where Giuliano Peparini worked in some unforgettable editions. A tribute to his mentor and teacher (next to Roland Petit) who will be in the small Campania town to reveal the secrets of his craft and his art alongside Veronica Peparini, the Canadian-born artist Reda Guerinik, and Eleonora Abbagnato, director of the corps de ballet of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, guest star waiting.
Specific objectives those of Giuliano Peparini. “I want to make myself available to young people, to be able to pass on my experience and my knowledge, to sow for the future and to give answers, to build paths for the future – he continues – In my life and in my career, I have chased dreams, but above all goals. and precise goals, I pursued a light, in part I had a clear course. But I had great masters in front of me, they were my compass, my lifeline – continues Peparini – like Roland Petit. His words are unforgettable: “do not look with your eyes, but follow my gaze “.
Duepuntozero is not only an ‘active’ experience in theatrical, dance, director and physical theater fields, but also immersive in an uncontaminated nature, among breathtaking landscapes, waterfalls and ancient convents. “It will not be just ‘abstract’ classes – explains Peparini – but I will concretely test the young people we work with. I learned it from Amici’s school. The program led by Maria De Filippi taught me to listen to young people. , to try first of all to understand them. I am more and more convinced that we need to be able to give answers to their hunger for knowledge, to their questions, always putting myself back on the line, participating in internships and meetings “.
“Because the more you know, the more you are able to give. Generosity, after all – he concludes – is a bit like love. It is something that must be solicited, built, nurtured”. Meanwhile Giuliano Peparini does not stop creating. A new reinterpretation of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is scheduled for the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, the commitment in Sicily for the D&G fashion show, while on June 3 he inaugurates the season of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma by signing the direction for the concert event by Claudio Baglioni, Dodicinote.
