Maria Grazia Chiuri has designed the costumes for "Nuit Romaine” the film directed by Angelin Preljocaj, staged at Palazzo Farnese, which will be on International Dance Day - Friday the 29th.
Christian Dior loved dance, and Maria Grazia Chiuri’s shared passion for the artform culminates today in the film Nuit Romaine.
The fruit of formidable synergies - a co-production of the House of Dior, the French Embassy in Italy and the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma follows Eleonora Abbagnatoand Friedemann Vogel, accompanied by a number of dancers, as they journey through the Palazzo Farnese via tableaux from director Angelin Preljocaj’s ballet. An essential inspiration for the French choreographer, the legendary palace is transformed into a narrative setting in dialogue with costumes that merge the virtuoso craftsmanship of Dior’s ateliers with those of the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, guided by Maria Grazia Chiuri.
A dreamlike work to be discovered on Dior's YouTube channel and social media accounts, starting on International Dance Day, April 29 at 3pm
