NY Premiere
By Alessandro Sciarroni

Co-presented as part of the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s
Crossing the Line Festival

Choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni returns to Crossing the Line Festival with the second part of his Will you still love me tomorrow? trilogy. In this contemplative work on the passage of time, four jugglers start nonchalantly tossing pins, building to a thrilling spectacle while Pablo Esbert Lilienfeld DJs live. This new performance embodies the drama and artistry of the juggler’s struggle—against gravity, against their weary bodies, against the potential for failure in every toss.

Supported by the Hermès Foundation
within the framework of the New Settings Program

Alessandro Sciarroni creates visceral, visual, high-endurance work, that defies categorization by combining dance, performance art, and ritual. Taking simple, repetitive choreography to its extremes, he pushes dancers to their physical limits to uncover obsession, fear, and vulnerability. Sciarroni’s works have been performed in his native Italy and all over the world at festivals and venues.
