Artistic presentation

we all have a common origin, we are all children of the universe’s evolution, of the stars evolution, therefore we are effectively all brothers. There are four hundred billions of stars in our galaxy, and there are more than a hundred billion galaxies in the universe. Thinking of being unique is very unlikelyMargherita Hack.

A show dedicated to the discovery of the Universe.
An imaginative and playful journey that starts from the Earth to go towards the stars.

After years and years of studies and observations of space, Professor Radar wakes up in that much-desired dream: together with the professors Bussola and Calamita, they finally put into action the invention of the century: the Space Carriage. An extraordinary invention to get in search of a place similar to the Earth.

Through this journey between planets and celestial bodies we will be able to experience the Constellations dance: luminous points in the sky, apparently close to each other but actually distant millions and millions of light years. Different points of view united in the gaze of the observer: perspective, relativity, dimensions of time and space, the qualities of matter, the movements of bodies, light, everything is present through play, dance and imagination of those who are able to see beyond the limits of the glance.

And so Professor Radar, Bussola and Calamita will continue their journey in interstellar space and who knows how many other adventures they will live, what new worlds and stars and galaxies  they will discover! And while we see them disappearing, becoming tiny points of light, we are here, knowing that the Earth and all of us are part of the great Show of the Universe. To continue to dance together with our little world, it is important to take care of it.

But now everything is ready to embark on this special journey. Just start with:
Ready, Departure … Space !!

Authors declaration

Our story starts from human beings, to make a journey from the earth to the universe, crossing space and time. Thanks to dance, for its being a balance between matter, space and time, we embarked on a creative journey with a complex theme such as the Universe We trust that body language favors the understanding of a very complex theories, with an experiential and sensorial approach. Through play and ironic situations, where we are nothing more than drops in an infinite ocean, we try to understand what happens to us above the head and even below! The more we try to understand, the more we realize that the pursuit of knowledge is long.This endless quest is perhaps the very engine of life. There are many connections between astronomical scientific theories and the principles of dance: the body is matter and astral matter becomes body. Einstein revolutionizes, with his discoveries, Newton’s conceptions of Space and Time, discovering that time, like space, is characterized by movement. Dance allows us to unveil the Universe not far from us and to understand the dynamics of its movements In this show we tell about the Solar System and its celestial bodies, allowing us to be aware of what surrounds us, or to be precise, in which we are immersed. The Universe is intended as a system that goes far beyond individual needs. Knowing it to take an example means this: every living being, every planet, every asteroid, every single element, even if very small, does its part and participates in the functioning of the whole astral gear. Our story starts from the Universe and to Universe returns.

Giorgio Rossi as E. Satie would say, “is a dancing mammal” . At the age of 4 years, seeing the Swiss clown Dimitri performing in the surreal time of the scene, he realized that theater was his life . He owes his artistic fortune to the chance he had to attend the work of great masters (Kantor, Brook, Bausch, Carlson. …) and, with some of them, he has learned scenic art, both as a student and as an interpreter. In 1984, he co-founded Sosta Palmizi, abbreviation under which, in 30 years, have worked more than 400 dancers and performers, who gradually found work in larger Italian and European Dance Theater companies or founded their own groups and some of them today, are  part of the Artisti Associati Sosta Palmizi. With his  shows, more than 30 productions, which have exceeded 1500 replicas, he has traveled around the world, thanks to the universality of the poetic art of movement. In recent years he has collaborated with many different  artists from other fields, such as: Andrea Pazienza, Paolo Fresu, Bernardo Bertolucci, Terry Gylliam, Stefano Benni, Paola Turci, Lucia Poli, David Riondino, Paolo Rossi, Banda Osiris, Jovanotti and many more. Furthermore Giorgio Rossi works with various people of all ages including therapeutic communities.
