DIVINA – NAUPACA DANCE FACTORY
DIVINA is a contemporary dance adaptation of ‘La Divina Commedia’ by Dante Alighieri. DIVINA is composed of three visually distinct acts: ‘Inferno’, ‘Purgatorio’ and ‘Paradiso’. The concept behind this production is the exploration of states of being rather than a simplified narration.
DIVINA departs from a point of despair, absurdity and juxtaposed heaviness with Dante’s descent into ‘Inferno’ with Virgil. ‘Purgatorio’ offers a state of transition, exploring meditation and purification. Dante’s final journey through ‘Paradiso’ takes the audience closer to perfection with Beatrice who represents both innocence and knowledge. The obsession and incessant search for perfection and beauty is at the heart of DIVINA.
