Vertical dance performance

The Shadow of Dreams recalls shadows as a language of representation of the oriental tradition: shadows are created to narrate human and non-human figures, to evoke the variety of visions,
between reality and dream, that make up Marco Polo’s legendary journey. The wall becomes a stage where 4 performers compose and go through worlds and atmospheres of journeys on lands and dreams, with the use of projections that create the setting for the dance. Lights and shadows are therefore the poetic duet that generates symbols and ambiguities within musical ARMONIES that will lead to a geographical and temporal journey without excluding twines with our time.

The company was founded in 2010 with Marianna Andrigo, vertical dance performer since 2002, and Aldo Aliprandi, sound artist and technician. They create performances that are characterized by the use of architecture as a scenic space: thanks to the use of techniques and equipment for working at height, dance inhabits heights and emptiness by looking at space as co-author of the directions. The works produced are site specific.
