Balletto di Roma launches Light on Dance
June / July 2019

The third step of Light on dance has instead provided for the request, from the direction of Balletto di Roma, to only two finalist candidates to elaborate an original artistic project (which has never debuted either in the form of a study or in complete form ).
Balletto di Roma awarded Nastja Bremec and Mychal Rynia (founders and choreographers of MN Dance Company, from Slovenia) the win of the first edition of Light On Dance. The duo will create a new creation with the Balletto di Roma’s dancers which will debut in 2020, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the foundation of the Company.
Balletto di Roma with Light on dance becomes an incubator of new creativity and promoter of initiatives aimed at supporting and enhancing still little-known artistic realities, favoring their production, becoming a link between tradition and the gaze towards the contemporary.
In occasion of the Aprile in Danza event at the Teatro Palladium, Balletto di Roma will present the outcome of the Light on Dance final phase with the debut of the creation signed by Bremec and Rynia.
Together with the winners, the direction of Balletto di Roma decided to award 3 special mentions to 3 participants: Federica Esposito, Nyko Piscopo and Leopoldo Guadagno.
The three choreographers will be involved as guest teacher and choreographer in the workshops within Inside Out Contemporary Dance, the 3rd edition of the showcase organized by Balletto di Roma and part of Contemporaneamente Roma 2019 program promoted by Roma Capitale – Department of Cultural Growth and made in collaboration with SIAE. The event is sponsored by Municipio XIII Roma Aurelio.

Light on dance, an entirely new experience in the context of Balletto di Roma, has allowed us to shed light on dance by providing young dance authors with different opportunities for creating and elaborating creative dance.
