Ballet Cymru present a brand-new evening-length work choreographed by International choreographer Tim Podesta, and featuring ex-Royal Ballet Principal Dancer and Royal Ballet Guest Principal Mara Galeazzi.
Shadow Aspect refers to an unconscious aspect of the personality that the conscious mind does not identify in itself. In short, the shadow is the dark side.
“To know yourself, you must accept your dark side. To deal with others' dark sides, you must also know your darkside.” Carl Jung
Mara Galeazzi was born in Brescia and studied at La Scala, Milan. She joined The Royal Ballet in 1992 and was promoted to First Artist in 1995, Soloist at the end of the 1997/98 Season and Principal in September 2003. She has danced every major role in the classical repertory and had many roles created for her by top choreographers around the world.
In May 2006 she is appointed 'Best Italian Dancer Abroad' (Danza & Danza Award). In November 2003 she received the nomination as Best Female Dancer at Critics’ Circle National Dance Award.
She has appeared as guest artist with the Stuttgart Ballet, Carla Fracci's Teatro dell'Opera in Rome and the Scottish Ballet. She also danced with Irek Mukhamedov, Carlos Acosta, Tetsuya Kumakawa and their companies. On the 7th March 2009 Mara was awarded the medal “Cavaliere Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana” (Knighthood) by the President of Italy.
