Together with Generali we were delighted to announce the creation of the"FEDORA - Generali Prize for Opera" to support young talents and new opera creations of excellence. 

The partnership was announced on the occasion of an evening organized in collaboration with our partners MEDEF International and the AROP - Association pour le Rayonnement pour l'Opéra national de Paris at the Palais Garnier in Paris, in the presence of international ambassadors and corporate representatives.

“Generali is actively engaged in promoting initiatives which not only preserve and champion culture and musical heritage but also support creativity, talent and innovation. Generali considers this “a way of life” – a consistent reality that shifts and transforms countries, businesses and the entire community. We are proud to support the partnership with FEDORA – encouraging a new generation of talented artists so as to guarantee the future of the opera in Europe, nurturing new productions and sharing this heritage with the community.”Philippe Donnet, CEO of Generali Group, commented:

The prize awards talented international teams of co-producing partners who collaborate on the creation of new opera, those who present projects of artists from various artistic backgrounds whose goal is to stage recently composed or rediscovered plays which have not been staged yet. The aim is to preserve and transmit musical heritage and further develop their creativity and the art form.

le syndrome Ian Opening Night

"Troisième volet consacré à l’exploration des pratiques de danses anonymes confrontées à la notion d’auteur, le syndrome ian accueille des souvenirs de clubbing et de la nuit. 
Ni hommage, ni reconstitution. 1979, première sortie en discothèque. Alors que la planète vibre sous le son du disco et de ses adeptes d’une danse ondulatoire et lanscinante, l’Angleterre voit naître une musique sombre et poétique rythmée par des corps électriques, angulaires et saccadés. Entre solitude et communauté, quels vestiges de ces corps (peut-être) contradictoires me reste-t-il aujourd’hui, alors que nous tentons encore, quoiqu’il arrive, de danser sur les ruines d’une nuit à jamais dissipée ? 
Le syndrome ian réunit neuf danseurs dans une vibration collective où le tempo se distribue entre physicalité des sub-bass et abandons mélodiques, en écho filtré à la poésie de Ian Curtis."
