Save the last dance for me is the final production by Alessandro Sciarroni, Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at La Biennale di Venezia 2019. The performance comes from a Bolognese dance called polka chinata, a courtship dance initially performed by men only and dating back to the early 1900s.  Reviving this popular tradition in danger of extinction, Sciarroni develops a whirling journey aimed at bringing memory to the border between tradition and contemporary. A dance on the vertigo of hugging.
