The project also hosted foreign choreographers who have been dancing for the eclectic international company NEDERLANDS DANCE THEATER: Jiri Pokorny (Ndt1 e KiddPivot by Crystal Pite), Marco Blazquez (Ndt2 e BallettMainz), Ivan Perez (Ndt1 / production Korzo), Iratxe Ansa (Ndt1,dancer for Forsythe, kylian, Mats Ek, Nacho Duato). Folllowing this experience a number of participants from the Ed ENSEMBLE took part in an internship program with the Equilibro Dinamico company, gaining the opportunity to work closely together with Spanish choreographer Blazquez as well as with professional EDC dancers Ed ENSEMBLE presented its first work in december 2014: Il vaso di Pandora, created by Roberta Ferrara and dancers from EDC.
The ensemble then worked in a project called Youth which involved three innovative productions by Ferrara, Disanto e De Luca, performed at the end of the project in September 2015. The project also became part of an itinerant creative work with a first attempt at improvising in Tueri In by Ferrara (August 2015).
The project has been selected for two years in a row (2015-2016) for the MO’ Festival, held in the Calabria region, both times with works by choreographer Ferrara. In January 2016 ED ENSEMBLE presented “Open the doors, please!” at Palazzo Theatre in Bari. The performances were tailored for the young dancers and created by Angelo Petracca, Alessandra Gaeta, Roberta Ferrara, Antonella Albanese, Beatrice Netti, Roberta Chirulli, Nicola De Pascale e Tonia Laterza.
The young talents also danced in a piece called Frammenti, created by Ferrara and displayed at Cittadella degli Artisti in Molfetta.
In April Ed ENSEMBLE was selected by Mauro De Candia for the season at the Curci Theater in Barletta, where it performed the production Dorica 7 by Ferrara.
In June the young dancers will hold their final show, I Carmina Docta, created by Roberta Ferrara and by EDC dancers.
The Ed ENSEMBLE project offers to young dancers a comprehensive training. The project covers a wide range of subjects going from contemporary to modern dance, to dance-theatre, as well as Cunningham, Horton, Graham, Limon techniques, urban dance, floorwork, improvising techniques, contact, pas de deux and choreography workshops. Two theoretical subjects are also included in the program, namely anatomy applied to dance and contemporary dance history, thus introducing to yoga and hip hop. The work carried out in Ed ENSEMBLE complements the dancers’ daily activities in dance schools or professional centers. Ed ENSEMBLE’s aim is to provide instruments for further study and new inputs in the field of contemporary and experimental research. At the end of the year the dancer is given a Certificate which describes the program and is signed by all host choreographers and trainers who thereby confirm the results achieved.
