We are at Kronos, a timeless place where three bizarre characters work in white lab coat. Precision, efficiency, natality: here you decide the fate of every unborn child, from here they send the child to the prospective parents according to strict rules which no one, since the time of Adam and Eve, has never called into question. Until one day a future child stands up: he just can’t get over it, he won’t accept that someone decides for him. He wants to choose for himself. But you cannot choose your parents. Or maybe yes … During the show are shown, narrated and danced different kinds of parents: funny, playful, tender but also angry, nervous, absent. IUnlimited is the catalog of the candidates, and endless are the nuances that each of them hides behind appearances because there is always something unexpected. On who will fall the choice?

Col naso all’insù is a free game in which the emotions and behaviors become the inspiration for the creation of a spectacular time between word, dance, clowning and music. It is a hymn to the power of imagination and freedom. An opportunity to entertain, amaze, and gently give a pause.
One of the inspirations comes from the “Parents’ Catalogues”, a book written by Claude Ponti where children can watch a hilarious parade of types of fantastic and surreal parents. Other fundamental readings have been the writings by Jorge Luis Borges and Stefano Benni, where imaginative animals inhabit parallel worlds and imagination has no boundaries.
The most profound inspiration that we recognize as authors to the creation of the show is that of being children, even before parents because as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s wrote in “The Little Prince”: I will dedicate this book to all the adults who were children one time. (But few of them remember it).
