Sydney Choreographic Ensemble in association with Riverside Theatres Presents is thrilled to bring to the stage the world premiere of Galileo by internationally recognised choreographer Francesco Ventriglia.
Ventriglia, the Artistic Director of Sydney Choreographic Ensemble, takes the great 16th century scientist’s discoveries about motion and puts them to the ravishing music of Baroque giants Vivaldi, Scarlatti, Corelli and Monteverdi. Theory becomes flesh and blood as the raw material of speed, freefall, trajectory and inertia is transformed into emotion and startling beauty.
Inspired by their shared Italian heritage, Ventriglia celebrates Galileo Galilei’s glorious reputation as the father of modern science. Galileo will take to the Riverside stage from Wednesday 1st to Saturday 4th June.
