In l’altra metà del cielo (“The other side of the sky”), Martha Clarke, MacArthur “Genius Grant” winner and vital choreographer, takes on an usual challenge – staging a dance piece based on the music of aging Italian rock star Vasco Rossi, a man known for his drug use, racism, and misogyny. The resulting piece is nothing short of magical – Clarke transforms his lyrics of hatred into a piece that glorifies the feminine identity, rather than tear it down.
