Opening ceremony to take place Feb. 10.
Acclaimed Canadian electronica producer Richie Hawtin has collaborated with Italian choreographer Enzo Cosimi on a section of the opening ceremony of the XXth Olympics Winter Games taking place in Torino on Feb. 10.
Hawtin and Cosimi recently worked together in Hawtin's Berlin studio on the composition titled "9:20," written and produced by Hawtin. It will accompany Cosimi's choreography featuring Italian dancer Robert Bolle along with dozens of other dancers, performers and acrobats.
"Enzo and I are very much interested in pushing boundaries, both as artists and for our audiences," says Hawtin. "Working together for the opening ceremonies of the Winter Games delivers the creative endeavor to not only entertain a huge audience, but to also introduce them to sights and sounds that they may have never experienced before."
