Catalyst Casa Romantika
by David Bianchi and Riccardo Rombi
with David Bianchi
directed by Riccardo Rombi
stage movement Ulpia Popa
Siani Bruchi lights
A shopping trolley as a ship to sail the seas of fantasy, a desert island to live in, a love to live and a story to be told without words but with the imaginative art of the circus. This and much more is Casa Romantika theatrical show that intertwines clowning, mime, music and imagination. The protagonist is Roman, a drunk fishing Clown, allergic to water, who, surprised by a storm, is shipwrecked with his boat / trolley, on a plastic island where every object takes on a new life. Visionary, melancholic, romantic as only a Clown can be, Roman will find himself recycling everything he finds in an original and fun way. Modern version of a modern day Robinson Crusoe, he will be able to reconstruct an entire world from what others have thrown away: four poles that become a house, a tablecloth that acts as a roof, a cape, an umbrella and a petrol can that will make a Romantika love story ...

Aladdin and the magic lamp
text, direction and original music by Teo Paoli
with Silvia Baccianti and Lavinia Rosso (on stage) and with Aura Calarco and Giulio Paoli (on video)
costumes Anna Primi videographer Lavinia Rosso and Teo Paoli
stage movements Alessandro Mazzoni
A show that unfolds like the pages of a precious book, from scene to scene, a whirlwind merry-go-round of funny and mysterious, tender and romantic situations and characters who will accompany you in the magical, ancient Orient of the Thousand and One Nights. The reckless son of a poor tailor, a cunning and cruel magician, a genius imprisoned in an old lamp, the daughter of the Sultan ... and in the background, the streets of an oriental market, an underground garden with trees that bloom diamonds and rubies , and a palace that is the envy of the king's castle. The story of Aladdin is a story of great desires and great magic, of great loves and great cruelties̀; a story where the boundary between reality and fantasy, between possible and impossible, blurs until it almost disappears completely. The light of the lamp and the glow of the precious stones inspire the show that contains the story in a "magic lantern" in which events, places and characters chase each other in a whirlwind of surprising apparitions, evanescent shadows, sounds and music that immerse us in the magical atmosphere of the ancient East.
