“Enzo Celli prioritizes emotional messages over particular steps or movements.
He works for the souls [of the audience], not for individual people”.
Wall Street Journal
“The right mix between dance-maker and dance could be found in Après-midi d'un Faun, choreographed by Enzo Celli. Après-midi d'un Faun played with the lushness of Debussy's iconic score and the dancers' subtle animalistic qualities, seamlessly traveling from floor to standing. Dancers moved with the lightness of air, adding to the dreaminess of the dance. Taking a less is more approach Celli let the dancers' rare qualities take center stage, allowing us to fill in the familiar narrative”.
“Enzo Celli entered the stage and engaged the audience by making clear eye contact and simply demonstrating the hilarity of the power of minimalism. Suddenly, he began a series of sliding rond de jambs that turned into a duet with Elisabetta Minutoli. The intertwining movement told a beautiful story of the quest between people to be noticed by one another. The arc of the piece was excellently executed and, in the end, they returned to humor. Comedy cannot exist without darkness, and Celli’s work demonstrated this superbly”.
"Brings on stage new emotionalism; Vittoria Ottolenghi said "dance is the only human activiy together with love in which the man is there all; physical, mental and emotional. "And that's how Celli make".
Dance & Culture
“Enzo Celli believes in the group – the swooping form of a flock of birds as they navigate through thick air. He also believes in the individual; a dancer should be recognized as a person first, a part of the company second.
In this, Celli is complicated. In his deep love for dance, Celli is clear”.
“Class with Celli is a lesson in developing self and in performing courageously. No moment is lost as a simple technical lesson; every turn and twist is a chance to hone your personal dance vocabulary in the guise of Celli's movement. He celebrates the differences within each dancer. And in turn they can celebrate themselves”.
“We’re infatuated with Enzo Celli's expressive style and beautiful accent”.
