Dance workshop & performance by La Rossignol

The cultural movement known as Italian Renaissance encompasses a long period of extraordinary growth, where masterpieces follow one another in a fascinating crescendo. Magnificence gets married with grace: the desire to astonish and the research for a more and more refined way of living induce the courts to adopt precise behavior norms. Music, dance and musical instruments grow into symbols with an intrinsic value: not anymore simply forms of entertainment, but indicators of an environment where social conventions are becoming more and more complex.
Thanks to La Rossignol that the Renaissance dances become more than a simple form of amusement and of courtly technique, and assume the characteristics of a proper musical and dancing art: refined, elegant, and codified into precise written forms. The performance is presented by international professionals wearing costumes of the XV and XVI century and playing very curious early music instruments. They will stress the social and inter-relational aspects of the Renaissance dances by recreating a typical Italian “festa” with its well-defied contrast of two different worlds: the musicians and servants preparing the feast, and the nobility amusing themselves with music and dances.
La Rossignol will perform within the premises of the Usmar Ismail Hall, Kuningan on 22nd of September and they will also conduct a Master class in the day after.
