/ The Ghosts
Constanza Macras, one of the most remarkable figures in contemporary dance, presents The Ghosts, a work of total theatre. This piece creates a breath taking short-circuit between dance, theatre, live music and circus: one of the arts China is most strongly associated with in the global imagination. A realm of balance and acrobatics that challenge the very laws of gravity.

Teatro Contatto meets the Far East Film Festival. The theatre arts of the east comes face to face with the cinematographic arts of the east, for an international evening that brings to a close the season at CSS and opens with a preview this year’s voyage with FEFF 18. The star of the evening is the unforgettable choreography created by Constanza Macras, one of the most remarkable figures in contemporary dance. Here, she presents The Ghosts, a work of total theatre. This piece creates a breath taking short-circuit between dance, theatre, live music and circus: one of the arts China is most strongly associated with in the global imagination. A realm of balance and acrobatics that challenge the very laws of gravity.

Macras’ vision of China is unique and non-conventional. Her interest has been captured by the lives and artistic careers of a number of Chinese acrobats who are reaching the end of their working lives. These are people who, at the age of just 25, are already being left behind and quickly forgotten by Chinese society. Ghosts, indeed, and characters that remind us of figures from Chinese mythology, the “hungry ghosts”, lost souls that have been forgotten by their descendants, destined to a barren existence in a lost realm.

The Ghosts offers them a temporary return to life, once more making their stories and their art visible and thrilling.
