Press Reviews

 

«Wrapped in a cone of light, captured by spotlights, they follow a barely recognizable choreographic thread.»

Aalener Kulturjournal

 

«This results in an overall picture of dynamics and expression. Most remarkable, wonderfully harmonious and appealingly artistic.»

Aalener Kulturjournal

 

«Since 1995 the Italian has been convincing with works for ballet, dance theatre, film and opera.»

Abendzeitung Munich

 

«In the quartet the dancers slide to the floor. They mutate into a perfectly attuned perpetual motion machine that fascinates by its virtuoso handling of movement restrictions.»

Abendzeitung Munich

 

«Even after the break in 'Pink and Blue', Posterino skilfully positions his four dancers in the room.»

Abendzeitung Munich

 

«Posterino Dance Company, a true talent factory.»

ARD Mediathek

 

«Posterino's journey will go in all directions, because he wants to take advantage of the 360 degrees provided by his compass.»

Augsburger Allgemeine

 

«If there had been a prize for festival performers of the year, these two would have run away with it. Posterino's choreography focused and channeled her technical prowess and his muscular grace into a unity of particular power.»

Dance Europe

 

«The intensive network of relationships consisting of movements, encounters and danced dialogues lets the associations wander much further.»

Frankfurter Rundschau

 

«Much applause and bravos received the well thought-out harmonious performance.»

Gießener Anzeiger

 

«Gaetano Posterino brings a breath of fresh air to the Munich ballet and dance scene.»

Mucbook

 

«His quartet demonstrates possibilities for relationships between the genders. With pathos, perhaps. And with precision. Posterino works with the utmost precision, just as a left foot strokes the right leg of the opposite person in a male duet to fado singing.»

Münchner Feuilleton

 

«They continue to fight with such difficult breathing. Like the animals. The choreographer wants to create strong images that remain in the mind. About dying. About the destruction and pollution of paradise.»

Münchner Feuilleton

 

«They move in a highly professional, undulating, neoclassical style, continuously in transition to rubber-soft floor figures.»

Münchner Merkur

 

«Posterino plays with motifs in his very independent contemporary language of movement and in an associatively collagenous manner.»

Passauer Neue Presse

 

«The love ritual of courtship, closeness and distance, fulfillment and disappointment takes place with good-humored oldies — Corinne Cilia and Aya Sone as outstanding dancers between neoclassic and disco. Premiere cheer.»

Passauer Neue Presse

 

«Like a flower — strong and yet fragile.»

Reutlinger Generalanzeiger

 

«A solo about being a stranger and the longing for identity.»

Reutlinger Generalanzeiger

 

«In a sophisticated sequence of movements, he dances again and again into the frame — and out again, producing mirror-image, parallel, synchronous or even sectional doublings of himself. He struggles with himself, he communicates with himself, he dances with himself: moving.»

Reutlinger Nachrichten

 

«Accompanied by music from offstage. Always as a commentary on the dancing event, always difficult and in an interpretation that seems to explain the dance steps.»

Schwäbische Post

 

«What counts are the emotions that are aroused there, the extremely strong images that are shown.»

Schwäbische Post

 

«Captivating choreography full of intimations, mixing classical dance with contemporary dance.»

Schwäbische Post

 

«Not everyday, surprising and exciting.»

Schwäbische Post

 

«As if on a tape, the dancers show the most impressive dance, which merges into sports acrobatics and also takes up borrowings from classical dance theatre.»

Schwäbische Zeitung

 

«An introspective search for movement reflected in dance, which focuses on fascinating expressions of modern diction in order to open up new spaces for dance.»

Schwäbische Zeitung

 

«Romance, relaxation and a shot of eroticism were the order of the day.»

Schwäbische Zeitung

 

«Like a brilliant firework. Highly agile dance theatre meets modern, expressive choreography.»

Schwäbische Zeitung

 

«The piece by Italian choreographer Gaetano Posterino showed the possible and impossible dialogue between dance, language and music.»

Schwäbisches Tagblatt

 

«In 2018 he made a short film on the difference between genders for ARD, which transforms scientific findings into dance. It is all the more astonishing how undidactic his new gender mosaic comes along.»

Süddeutsche Zeitung

 

«Italian choreographer Gaetano Posterino and his dance company pay homage to the light figure of dance theatre.»

Süddeutsche Zeitung

 

«Since 2002, Gaetano Posterino has been developing its intrepid neoclassical point shoes style, mixing with contemporary elements and dance theatre between Wiesbaden and Palermo.»

Süddeutsche Zeitung

 

«Posterino's movement language medley proves to be predestined for this. Plastic tutus, teasing accessories and bags over the heads of the dancers take their — and the audience's — breath away.»

Süddeutsche Zeitung

 

«Body language and the acting aspect came more to the fore, the mutual conditionality of man and woman, of man and cello are virtuously put into relation. A ludicrous up and down with dizzying contortions. The receipt of the audience? A hardly ending cheering.»

Südwest Presse

 

«If you look away, you will definitely miss something at this performance!»

tanz.at

 

«The choreography gets its drive from different songs. Their words and rhythms motivate solos and duets.»

Tanznetz

 

«The dancing is relaxed and there is no need to search for the coded difficulties of human encounters. They arise naturally from the moment.»

Tanznetz

 

«His dancers oscillate between helplessness and actionism, shock and indifference.»

TZ Munich

 

«Posterino‘s extraordinary physical dexterity seems to mock all anatomical facts.»

Wiesbadener Kurier

 

«The moving portrayal of a modern couple seeking support where there is none, and yet defying gravity for a short time.»

Wiesbadener Kurier

 

«The opera fragments mix with the solos of the musicians whose paths the dancer Gaetano Posterino crosses: his expressive figures can be read at times as ironic commentaries on the pathos of the genre — as if the dance, in the case of 'Traviata' for example, wanted to pick up fragments and collect lost feelings from them.»

Wiesbadener Kurier

 

«Proof also that for expressive dance theatre one does not have to start a Spartacus rebellion.»

Wiesbadener Kurier

 

«Posterino gave creative expression to the cheerful and elegiac mood of the works, accompanied by the sensitive playing of the clarinetist.»

Wiesbadener Tagblatt

 

«Choreographed for the camera by Gaetano Posterino, the ballet tells about sexual relations between the genders. And takes a counter position to science: none of the duos mark the difference between the genders. Thus, the evidence gathered here on the aggressive man and the submissive woman is referred to the realm of prejudice.»
