The Dream of Flying

Based on the novel by Richard Bach, Livingston is a metaphor in which flight represents a process of evolution: the individual's quest and inner growth. The set design is a modular metal structure that occupies the entire stage; it initially seems an insurmountable obstacle, a sort of cage reflecting the narrowness of the flock from which Livingston originates, but the structure itself gradually becomes an important support for the winged creatures of his new flock, allowing them to perform extraordinary and fascinating manoeuvres: all uncertainties and limitations disappear.

The story, structured around a series of pictures, moves and captivates the audience with the strength and intensity of the choral movements that conceal a moving depth and delicacy.

This lightness of gesture is clearly seen in the agility and physical prowess of the dancers, who leap from one level of the structure to another, only to remain suspended in mid-air.

The musical scores were composed for the occasion by Andrea Pozzoli.
