What is there behind? And behind the behind?
The night event includes 3 performances, a solo, a trio and a solo.

Le Mani

A piece about the immersion into a real touch. A physical touch, a mental touch, an emotional touch of a human, of a plant, of the heart, of the air... Letting it penetrate, disturb, pierce and unlock. Desires and wishes emerging. Carrying, caressing, holding, protecting them within. Alive.


Initially inspired by the paintings »Conformity«, »Uniformity« of Nina L Felice. It explores through subtle body movements the fixity of the body and its possibility of deconstruction and reconstruction. Between dream and reality, tragic and comic, sacred and profane the piece portrait three ordinary women which turn to be gangsters


Zero is a new beginning, the point from where after a disaster, everything must start again.
