Born in Italy, Jacopo Godani began his choreographic career in 1990s and has worked since then with several international companies. Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company nominated Godani to be the Artistic Director in 2015 and now the company will arrive to Kuopio. Elegance and raw physicality is typical in Godani´s artistic style and will be seen in his works also at the festival week. Postgenoma, High Breed and Echoes from a Restless Soul are works which Godani brings to Kuopio Music Centre. Postgenoma and High Breed are beutiful in their unreality where contemporary dance is combined with music of 48nord. Echoes from a Restless Souls is lighter, more classic and even poetical work with Maurice Ravel's music.
