Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli recreated a 15th century Italian renaissance dance for the opening of New York's performance biennial, Performa. Principal dancer for the Bolshoi and American Ballet Theatre, David Hallberg was on stage for the performance of Fortuna Desperata at St Bart's church. The costume of Hilberg was designed by Prada in a modern meets renaissance style with a mix of classic fabrics such as natté woollen fabric and pink duchesse and contemporary fabrics such as ciré bonded with jersey and embroidery of stones, crystals and hand-folded fabrics. On the design of Prada, Vezzoli said; "The costume which Prada has made for is the perfect metaphor for his Fortuna Desperata performance. Its pseudo-renaissance style is philological, yet the materials are ultra-modernist. Like the dance steps that Hallberg will perform, his costume will seem like a futuristic version of a painting by Beato Angelico." Hallberg added about the performance, "Renaissance social dancing happened centuries before the formation of classical ballet. What fascinates me is how this movement evolved into the birth of classical ballet. This is a very academic study by two modern day artists, offering an intriguing balance between the two.”
