BALLETTO TEATRO DI TORINO
was founded in Turin in the 70s around Loredana Furno, the étoile Regio Theatre. Open to contemporary forms of dance, she decides to invite, with new creations, choreographers like Milorad Miskovitch and Vittorio Biagi. In the 80s the company continues its research inviting young Italian choreographers, names like Bertrant D’At, Job Sanders, Gigi Caciuleanu, Luca Veggetti. In 2000 Karole Armitage creates the particular Yo, Gioacomo Casanova. A particular attention is also given to the artistic choreographic heritage, in fact José Limon Foundation will offer BTT one of its major pieces, There is a Time. The research and historical memory continue their path with the entrance in the repertoire of fundamental works in the history of dance of the XX century: Serge Lifar in 1997 and Aurel Milos in 1999, one of the major choreographers of the 50s and 60s in Italy. Since the beginning BTT has always cared about activities of artistic creations, activities for youngsters with shows, meetings and international workshops. Together with its Ballet Season in Turin and performances in the major Italian theatres, the company has been in Argentina, Peru, United States, Brazil, Uruguay, Russia, China, Taiwan, Israel. In 2001 Loredana Furno redefines the artistic profile of BTT choosing Matteo Levaggi as resident choreographer. In 2008 the company also wins the Prix compagnie d’auteur during Les Etoile de Ballet2000 in Cannes at the Festival Palace. Since 2009 BTT is a resident company at Lavanderia a Vapore, Center of Excellence for Dance in Collegno (Turin), wanted by the Piedmont Region and the Municipality of Collegno.
