From light as a generator of feelings, emotions and perceptions, this performance is about the human being’s transformation capacity throughout day and night. Starting with colors as main element, we experiment with different perceptual areas. Through tonal change we explore the human relationship with time and space. The performance lasts 12 minutes, which represent 12 hours at day and night time
Color Phenomenology raised from a common collaboration in the frame of the art biennale Manifesta11 in Zurich. The duo is now taking the artistic collaboration further, combining the elements of visual and performative art..

COLOR PHENOMENOLOGY | a collaboration with Zony Maya
SPUREN | a collaboration with Mirjam Sutter
A collaboration with Mirjam Sutter about Swiss customs turned into a discovery of primitive traditions that are still alive despite today's modernization. Alpine rituals touch us und and evoke an odd sensation of longing. The creation reflects the experienced impressions through the language of movement and sound. SPUREN ("traces") sets the wild, rough and untamed groove of archaic customs in contrast to the totally ordered picture of Switzerland and is an invitation to (re)discover Swiss traditions.

VOICE & CELLO
RÖSTIGRABE | a solo from the dance performance ROOTS
The daily action of peeling potatoes is as a pretext to ironically recall the quirky differences within our country - Switzerland. During a multilingual monologue the performer seeks contact and agreement with the public: will she manage to reveal the secret of a perfect Rösti? The recipe of the Swiss Dish par excellence, narrated with words and movement.
RÖSTIGRABE is winner of the first price at the solo contest at the festival "Zeitverschwendung" in June 2015 at E-Werk Freiburg (DE).
The festival is produced by the collective off deluxe.

QUIETA... INQUIETUINE | Nunzio Impellizzeri Dance Company
QUIETA...INQUIETUDINE is about pictures, fragments of existence, considerations about being, of things vanishing, of time passing by. Nowadays our real reason of disturbance is not having someone to share our contemplations.
Awarded with the audience price at Loikka Dance Film Festival for the 60secondsdance competition in Helsinki in 2016, QUIETA...INQUIETUDINE is now being screened all over the world.
DICCILLU is a moving story about Sicily. The modern vocabulary of contemporary dance meets folk-influenced music; traditions and contradictions of an European reality come together on stage. Accompanied by live music, four dancers and a singer describe Sicilian life in expressive images and virtuoso movements.
At the end of the 18th century, things will get better. The road to the Golden Age is lined with alchemy and magnetic cures of charlatans, clever business people and the mysterious Illuminati. BARONE UTOPIA is the story about the incredible enlightenment of Tommaso Francesco Maria de Bassus, performed in the original location – Palazzo Massella (Hotel Albrici) in Poschiavo.
We tell the story of one who sets out to seek happiness. Of course, there are some obstacles. Dead people from the past confront the fortune seeker with his own fears. Finally, he conciliates with the dead – a festive waltz ends the piece and opens the dance floor. DARF ICH BITTEN? takes you on a musical journey through time - from the swing of the 20s, through rumba, waltz & co. up to the 90s’ tango.
The end of a love, a trip, a long journey. We say goodbye to each other, not knowing what is expecting us next. The feeling that everything is leaving us in an uncertain emptiness reminds of death, it could be death. If we don't have the strength to make a new start, the desire of resolution takes over. Will we let this happen? Together we'll dance the apparent end of our lives. We don't do this in silent grief, but celebrate it in a last FEST.
A sudden phone call drags the two quirky detectives away from their daily office routine. Their new case takes them into the dark forest to investigate mysterious crimes. During their work they are constantly distracted by trivialities and get caught up in more and more absurd situations. Finally, the detectives face an apparently insoluble mystery. Using dance, humor and an amusing soundscape, our heroes move between different time frames. A danced detective mistery for kids and adults with young spirit.
