The Spanish author Helena Tornero will be at Teatro i (Milano) from the 17th to the 23th April.

Fascination (Latin) 1. f. Delusion or hallucination. 2. f. Irresistible attraction.
They work all day long. A stressful, committed, misunderstood job. But three nights a week they meet there and dance. Cha-cha-cha. Rumba. Waltz. Dance classes for all. Paid for by the company. Pasodoble. Bolero. Salsa. Because the company loves them. The company is like a big family. A big family united by the same idea. And families will do anything to stay united. Fox-trot. Tango. Nothing can alter the family harmony. Swing. Nothing. One, two, three, Mambo.
Fascinación is a text that is read with the rhythms and movements of bodies that dance. That try to dance, despite their minds, fears and prejudices. Because the body does not deceive. The mind does, however, and a great deal. Ideas are barriers, walls, frontiers. The body, however, always goes one step further. The body moves. The body dances. The gesture always ends up revealing those stories that the mind tries so hard to hide.
