19b - Circo Madera
CIRCO MADERA was born in 2020 and together with the artists of Cascina all'Inverso designed and planned the chapiteau, and built it despite the pandemic. In 2021, the company, just starting out, obtains support from the Ministry of Culture's Single Fund for Performing Arts and is recognized as a contemporary and innovative circus company.
The term Madera, means wood in Spanish, but it also indicates the fabric, the aptitude, the talent, that innate mold necessary to achieve a goal. The term contains the primary components of the company and the nature that characterizes its artists: from the hands of sculptor Bruno Geda the Circus becomes structure and atmosphere, from the stage artists it takes life and narrative form, from visual communication it extends and promotes its unique style.
In fact, Circo Madera, the first circus created by a sculptor, is also distinguished by the synergy between multifaceted artists: theater actors, musicians, singers, circus performers and painters, united by the idea of shaping and evolving together, around works with a strong theatrical accent. With the desire to create a place where different artistic forms can meet and become a fertile ground for exchanges, artistic and musical evolutions.
HESPERUS - A time machine takes us through the existence of live performance: from its birth to its departure. A performance that stems from the need to ask a question: is the live performance alive? Is it dead? Does it not feel so good? Through virtuosity and laughter, the vision will be revealed: a hopeful future in which live performance once again becomes a central part of our life experience, powerfully resuming its extraordinary role: to engage, amaze and entertain, to make us reflect and grow.
