WINNING SHOW OF THE EMILIO VASSALI 2021 AWARD

The show is inspired by the text of the Futurist author Aldo Palazzeschi "The Code of Perelà", and focuses on what in the story are defined as "some citizen personalities". Representatives of different sectors of society, these grotesque characters, filling their mouths with gossip, lies, and false promises, try to win the favor of the newcomer, a bizarre Smoke Man, of whom they know nothing but whom  want  look alike at all costs.

A dynamic show e  engaging, in which  the artists perform with dances, on the ground and on stilts, acrobatics around the scenographic structure and elements of puppetry.
