The company started its theatrical investigation journey with its first show: ‘Kamchàtka’. A group of timeless immigrants who aren’t familiar with the social
codes and customs of the place they have arrived in. Through group improvisation and exploration of public space, their arrival highlights, with subtlety and emotion, society’s contradictions: a society which seems to have forgotten the profound meaning of sharing and coexistence. In this way they seek to provoke a genuine encounter, from within human nature’s real essence... it’s authentic common denominator.
In its new production FUGIT, the desire to ensure the continuity of their investigation and give it new meaning has led the company to focus its artistic investigation on the idea of flight / running away. It is fleeing, yet not as a way of escaping, but as a means of fighting for hope of a better world. It examines the grade of freedom one senses within, freedom which drives one to abandon the place one belongs.
The journey, as a way of distinguishing the unnecessary from the essential, where space is in constant transition and solidarity is a necessity for survival.
“In times like these , escape is the only way to stay alive and continue dreaming.” Henri Laborit - “Praise of flight” Fugit is a street show, itinerant and rewritten on site. The audience, invited to meet at an unexpected location, will take part in a surprising journey; an adventure in which the familiar geography of their own town or village turns into a labyrinth of experiences. Fugit makes the audience move through different spaces, as it moves them emotionally. For this production Kamchàtka members desire to ensure the continuity of their investigation and to give it a new meaning that has led the Company to focus its artistic investigation on the idea of escape /running away. It is fleeing, yet not as a way of escaping, but as a mean of fighting for hope of a better world. It examines the grade of freedom someone feels inside, freedom which drives someone to abandon the place he/she belongs to. The journey, as a way of distinguishing the unnecessary from the essential, where space is in constant transition and solidarity is a necessity for survival.
