I Nuovi Scalzi
I Nuovi Scalzi, a company of young artists from Puglia, in collaboration with the dancer Anna Moscatelli and under the watchful eye of Giorgio Rossi have created a project aimed at childhood, the discovery of the Universe and dance that led to the creation of the show “Costellazioni. Pronti, partenza…Spazio!” suitable for all children from 4 to 99 years old. A common idea has encouraged the collaboration between I Nuovi Scalzi and Sosta Palmizi – in particular Giorgio Rossi, in the field of educational activities and awareness raising aimed at young people, in order to spread the culture of contemporary dance, physical principles and body expressiveness.
