Is a new work created by Guido Tuveri. 
It is a voyage of consciousness and an exploration of relationships without emotional barriers. How truthful can we become in moments when we relax our emotional defenses? To enhance the capacity to feel the moment, performers and the audience are invited to focus their attention on suggestive images, in the form of short video clips which will be projected randomly.

The choreography is developed with the collaboration of the dancers.


Alessandra Corona, James Samson, Maria Vittoria Villa, Cassandra Orefice, James Johnson,  Michael Bishop, Brian Castillo.

Music by: Beló Velloso, Barney Fade, Camarón, Quadro Nuevo, Jonathan Elías, Pink Martini, Mick Gerber, Arvö Part, Andrey Krylov.

(former principal dancer of Paul Taylor Dance Company).

W2! (Women Too!)

Is a new work created and choreographed by Manuel Vignoulle which explores the evolution of the male/female dynamic in history from a contemporary man’s point of view. Through experiences of women from different periods and cultures, the audience will witness the transformation of women’s status over time and how this has influenced men’s behavior. Vignoulle also explores the corresponding changes in gender roles and how the boundaries between sexual identities have become more fluid.

“If your levees were to break
How hard would our waters rage?
No timid approach to things that are
Not distant
We are the same
Even if you can only see
Beauty personified “
(Parris Lewis)
