Together, they are searching for a hybrid language that enables a full contamination between their disciplines without taking them for granted or loosing their complexity. They put their individual means of expression at the disposal of a common purpose. They recognize themselves in the importance they give to a physicality always at the service of an urgency, a meaning. Their first creation Un po’ di più received several awards: Best Show at Minimo Theatro Festival 2017, Jury Award under 25 Twain_DirezioniAltre 2017, Special Mention at Presente e Futuro 2017; Best show of Direction Under30 2019; Special OFF Award, Critics’ Award and Fringe Spirit Award at Roma Fringe Festival 2019.
