Somiglianza "L’après-midi d’un faune"

Somiglianza is an ironic and joyful tribute to Nijinsky’s mythical creation and best-known modern ballet: L’après-midi d’un faune. Combining end-of-century imagery and exotic staging, Somiglianza questions symbolism in Western society. However, nothing is what it once was, the faun is dressed in a white lacy nightshirt and the nymphs have morphed into synchronised swimmers.Nijinsky’s creation about Debussy’s L’après-midi d’un faune, one of the most renowned modern ballets, serves as the starting point for Kor’sia to show their particular vision about the dance iconography.
