It starts on Saturday 15 April from Triennale Milano which will host the series of conversations “miart LIVE at Triennale Milano”.
The collaboration between Miart 2023 and Triennale Milano is also underlined by the “FOG – Triennale Milano Performing Arts” review, which will present the two Italian premieres “How a Falling Star Lit Up The Purple Sky” by Jeremy Nedd, international choreographer and performer, and Impilo Mapantsula, a global network specialized in energy-charged dance, and “Le sacre du printemps”, a choreographic research by Dewey Dell inspired by Igor Stravinskij’s masterpiece.
The synergy with the Nicola Trussardi Foundation is also significant, which this year has chosen to start the celebrations for its first 20 years as a nomadic museum right inside the pavilions of the fair. Here on April 13 Beatrice Trussardi and Massimiliano Gioni will involve the public present in the cutting of a cake given by Maurizio Cattelan.
