After nine months of planning — a major part of it taking place during the nationwide lockdown in France — artistic development of the stage performance piece began in September 2020 at Orsolina28, an highly regarded international hub for dance training and creative development in Italy.  


“We are extremely grateful for the support from Orsolina28. Nestled in the hills of Monferrato, a UNESCO world heritage site, one can feel the love and the passion of its creator, Simony Monteiro, just by looking at how a small flower is arranged. The stunning views of the Monferrato valley, the vineyards and the gardens where all the ingredients from the kitchen come from. You are brought back to the power of being connected to nature, to yourself and to each other.” said Patsy, founder of sml Dance.


REBIRTH, commissioned to Graham for Europe by sml Dance for an artistic stage piece, will premiere in 2021.
