About the Performance

A stunning combination of dance and illusion

 

Evolution Dance Theater is an exciting dance theatre company created by ex-Momix dancer, Anthony Heinl.  It is dedicated to producing innovative dance and illusion theatre for Italy and the world.  In his three decades of experience in theatre and dance, Heinl has developed a unique theatrical sensibility, incorporating the human body with stunning illusionary effects. With imaginative technology, video, strong acrobatics, physical theatre and dance, a magical world making the impossible possible is created, often taking the audience by surprise.

 

FireFly is a production that creates visions of beauty and humour through a dreamlike series of fantasy vignettes with truly unique technical effects, and performed by a cast of dancers/acrobats.  A plethora of strange creatures unfettered by the laws of physics flash through space, melting into and breaking away from each other.  A new black light technique developed by Heinl enhances the excitement as figures mysteriously float, fly, bounce, and disappear.  The performance fuses the illusionary and the magical in a refreshing, engaging and memorable performance that continually excites the audience, appealing to young and old.  

 

About the Group

Evolution Dance Theater was founded in 2008 and almost immediately devoted itself with success to creating shows that fuse imaginative athleticism with charming visual effects.  The strength of the company is its knowledge of a comprehensive artistic vocabulary that is not limited to dance but extends to video art, illusion, lighting and special live effects.

 

Anthony Heinl, the choreographer of American origin, was educated and trained in chemical sciences and technology. Thanks to such a diverse background, he experimented with new materials and the combination of the elements to create the so-called "Hollywood effect" on stage.  Its magic also comes from the newest blacklight theatre technology which enhances the modern touch and the television effect.
