On the eve of a new creation the company intends to continue the study, already started in “Invisible”, that inquires on one side on the borders between theatre, gesture, dance and contemporary circus, that no longer represents their inner self, but becomes the necessary substrate that the show needs to tell its story, and on the other on the relation between human being and its nature.
A rip in the present, behind gesture emotionalism.
An urban and fairy-tale space where characters out of their context encounter.
“They reached without remembering from where; following a track that at a certain point interrupts. They feel disoriented and confused. A girl that has with her a rope and nothing else, men that become animals, strong men that become weak. Who leaves will never return; a tension that generates wait, that climbs on a wall that melts in a rite imprisoned by a dance. The body of who has reached, but doesn’t know where, narrated with words reduced to gestures in a continuous fall and rise, entrust and defend”.
Each circus technique is reduced to pure energy and transformed in a movement necessity. Tools enlace to the actors bodies like emotions to which all the characters are related. Space expands and shrinks, feeding on the accuracy of a falling abject, on the distance of two closed hands, on the immensity of darkness, on the danger of void, rising vertically and then bursting down on the stage floor.
