Contado en rojo

Nicolo Fonte

Fonte draws his inspiration directly from affective relationships, from the absence of communication. The ballet tries to be an exploration to come to a concrete dialogue that never takes place.


It is through a language so particular and abstract as that of movement, that this communication is finally produced, thus solving a long-lasting conflict. Fonte penetrates the world of colour, of plasticity of textures, to express a stream of energy, using red to represent the life force. Red/blood, red/passion, red/volcanic explosion, telluric nucleus that emerges with violence, with anxiety, as a liberation…

Fonte dedicates Contado en rojo to his father.
