"Necessary theatre"… necessary of course, more for us ourselves who perform each day, because we live from this theatre, because we always believed that it is necessary a way to be found in order to experiment and turn loose our creativity and imagination.
And there are times that we have the idea that we are also necessary for the children's clap, for the grin of an old man, or for the contagious laughter of a lady who seats in the second line. But these are only moments, and we are not ride the high horse for such trivial things and even they are small, we believe that each day that passes by is always more necessary…
«Nuova barberia da Carlone»
Music pantomime , no words, duration 60 ', 6 years and over
In today's puny Barberie provincial rectangular mirrors are fogged by time and covered by a web of scratches, creaky old chairs, rusty tools, the smell of grease and impatient customers waiting their turn in silent. But only half a century ago, the barber was none other than the gentlemen favorite hangout. A reasonable place, where you can discuss freely about their business and their own ideas. And there was music, there was coffee and there were anecdotes of Balzani trusted barber. The barber was, in short, the nerve center of the country.
The main idea of the show is to recreate the atmosphere of those days not too far where the barbershop singing, playing, serving drinks, he advised ... In a word, entertained his guests. And, of course, was his hair and beard. In the game, the stage is just the same barbershop, animated by the three would-be barbers, and a large crowd waiting room. The audience defines the boundaries around space and then rises to an integral part of the hall itself, ie the show.
The show plays on the time of waiting. Waiting for the client by the barbers who cheat the time sneaking in unusual demonstrations of skill. Also expected by the viewer, who, on balance, that can not 'fear the worst'. Wait that mystifies a deeper crisis of identity, since 'to be barbers' means 'to have a customer' as 'being actors' means 'to have an audience'.
Shamans and doctors, real artists determined to treat the scalp, to the sound of lotion, any problem, barbers / proud musicians flaunt their talent ... sure sign that the customer will come out clean and smooth, regenerated in the body and elevated in spirit
With Leonardo Adorni, Jacopo Maria Bianchini, Alessandro Mori
Direction: Mario Gumina

"Clown in liberta»
Music street performance with clown, 60 minutes, without words
A concert continually interrupted by the comic digressions of the musicians or is it a clown show well supported by music? As the title suggests Clown in libertà is a moment of euphoria, recreation and cathartic rituality for three funny, nice and talented clowns who seem to be taken by a childish excitement at the idea of having a stage and an audience at their complete disposal. Without a story expressed and without any dialogue, Clown in libertà tells of a peculiar afternoon of three clowns who want to set up a show to amuse, amaze and finally win, hug and kiss the audience of the passers by. Trying by any means to marvel and surprise, at the cost of overwhelming each other, they will end up leading the action astray from time to time: sequences of acrobalance follow, duels in slow motion, intricate juggling passages, and also physical evolution and pyramids. Music is the real centrepiece of the narrative development since it accompanies, underlines and gives the rhythm to each action. The entire show results as a continuous musical trip with interruptions, thanks to the ability of the artists, not even during the most unthinkable acrobacies.
