Participatory projects, projects in the educational environment, and danced seminars are all protean labs connected with one another thanks to one of the main focuses of the company: a creation department dedicated to the exploration of human trajectories through the concept of resistance, and of resilience. The two choreographers’ questionings about the relationship between the Human-beings and the Territory spring up, becoming a common thread.

We want to create enablers…through experimentation, research, from performative projects to writing residencies. It is all about providing shared spaces for artistic exchanges about the city and the society, creating sensible trajectories and experiencing them together, providing common space for encounters, make a step towards other people through art performance, inventing In situ moments with demonstrations, projects, that could imbricate inside the territory in harmony with its own dynamics.
We want to create a space of confrontation through communication, discussion. It is a blessing to convey the tools for creation, knowing that every creative process is unique, leading to a unique outcome, one window in the essential to the co-construction of the City.
