As the legendary alley cat O’Malley from The Aristocats was fond of singing, “Jazz is the thing folks dig most!” This children’s show is full of appeal for parents as well, and promises to take them back in time with a cavalcade of music from beloved cartoons. Scenes from Disney films, the Pink Panther and more accompany a wailing jazz band. The project was masterminded by Ugo Viola, who explains, “Children are the audiences of the future. The best gift of all is seeing them gaze in wide wonder as we combine live music with the cinema experience.”

In conjunction with Moncalieri Jazz. For children ages 4-11

Eleven dates back to 2011, when it premiered as part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the Futurist Music Manifesto written by Francesco Balilla Pratella, and takes its cue from that author’s Manual of Music Theory. Thanks to the work of musician and researcher Giuseppe Virone and support from the Torino Polytechnic, the project has been enhanced by software that allows audiences to interact with the musicians on stage – a unique example in performance art and imagery. The use of this technology makes for a multimedia extravaganza inspired by futurism in painting and other expressive forms, including cooking, fashion and literature. Music by an array of artists such as Luigi Russolo, Edgard Varèse and Frank Zappa brings it all together.

This performance follows a morning show for high schoolers, coordinated by Marco Basso.
