Walking in the clouds
The scene is not always confined to the stage, it breaks free. It is the palace of dreams where the person sitting in the shade of a tree in flames is ready to take wing and feast on the clouds. The scene we create is a theatre without walls where rites, ceremonies, celebrations, and stories take shape in gestures, movements and dances under the canopy of the night sky, held by the enchanted gaze of the onlookers. To stage means to create a fiction reality can’t do without. We give shape to amazing worlds without ever presenting a lie: lies are repetitions, but we create spectacles that are never to be repeated. There is no symbolic moment, historical event, private anniversary or public celebration that cannot find expression in the theatre of encounter, exchange and transformation. Our open-air performances offer a unique transformation of the setting, where the wings are monumental facades or flowing rivers and where the moon is never the same and even the clouds will, at a whim, scud across the stage.

Solitaria di Dio – 390° Festino di Santa Rosalia
For 390 years, in Palermo, a great scenic battle has taken place between good and evil, between life and death. In the evening of 14 July, the city wakes from its lethargy and starts to fight. Each strike is enthusiastic, committed, with a sense of belonging and a yearning for beauty. After the trials of blood and pestilence, light will triumph, the same light that illuminates the Foro Italico and that every soldier eager for peace, after the long journey down the Cassaro, Palermo’s most ancient street, will enjoy with his head held high. The 390th Festino di Santa Rosalia, as in the past, was charged with emotional intensity, captured on video by Riccardo Lupo for Studio Festi by MyMoon. This gives us the chance to see the spectacular all-female “Solitaria di Dio”, devised by the art director, Monica Maimone, where, among the many “Rosalie” thousands of beguiling faces of the Palermitani can be seen.

Sons et Lumières
As evening falls the sea at Portofino cradles the sun and our innermost dreams.
