Who we are
We are a duo born in 2010 in the Roman underground world. Traveling all over Italy we produce original shows interweaving collaborations with other artists for their realization. An element that characterizes us is the commedia dell’arte as a pedagogical base, of training and research on symbology and the grotesque. In 2012 we produce the show “Non T’Avevo detto” more than 100 times played nationwide. We collaborate as animators for the TV show “Gli Sgommati” from 2012 to 2014 aired on SkyUno.
We participate in 2016 at the Residenza Artistica Verdecoprente in Umbria and in the summer of 2017 we receive the Audience Award at the Palio Ermo Colle (Parma) with the show Criucc’-the experience of the trains of happiness. In 2017 and 2018 we collaborate with the Teatro di Limosa on the staging of two site-specific projects at the Camusac Museum of Contemporary Art in Cassino: Pinocchio and the tale of rejection, Giulietta without Romeo.
We give importance to the territory understood as a whole. We value the human experience through which awareness grows. We give weight to the memory because just with it the future is generated.
We think the theatrical space not only as the place where the texts and the emotions are interpreted but a place where can experience or touch the sensitive part hidden under our good manners. There the comedy comes as the unveiling of the everyday automatism that will inevitably trigger the laughter bringing our attention on that we are looking for: a human complicity.
We travel in a middle way between art and life, a way that is not disinterested in the reality that surrounds us however, does not want a total mimesis of what it represents. Imagine situations and emotional states finding the same nature of dreams in comic or tragic absurdity.
A projection that, even if breaks the spell of an illusion, ignites a true dream, a possibility, a curiosity, a reason.
