23/24 Performance Season
+ERBA – A Forest in the City
The extraordinary children’s interactive theater company, Compagnia TPO will premiere a new work for 23-24, +ERBA
+Erba – A Forest in the City is an interactive show with two dancers who create together with children an imaginary city. The ‘architect’ dancer observes the landscape and draws the city with houses and streets. The other dancer loves the earth, the insects and draws grass and trees. The two characters move in an empty scene where projections on two large aligned screens evoke a room of wonder. Here their ideas, imagination and projects are drawn from movement and come to life. The architect creates houses full of color and light, the other dancer redesigns them by adding grass and trees. The imaginary city grows by combining their different sensitivities. The newborn city becomes a living environment and new characters and new events are added. The children come to color and populate the city. Insects appear, the seasons change and the city gets bigger, busier and more complex. Their dream of a green city is coming true. Together, with the children, the dancers will design a new space where nature will grow and where a ‘tree concert’ can be expected.
