madalena reversa has been recently selected by “Crossing the sea, a long term-strategy project that aims to establish connection and cooperation between the performing art sector in Italy and in the Middle East and Asiatic countries.

  The emotional power of a light, a sound, an object, a body on set has always been what we’ve been mostly attracted to of theatre.

Our creations intend experimenting, through a planned combination of elements (lights, sounds, design), atmospheres that release a certain emotion.

Our artistic experimentations are located in a grey area between theatre and visual arts, between performance and installation, where the only essential element is dramaturgy.

Dreaming Beauty is a dramatic installation in the rooms of Sleeping Beauty’s enchanted castle.
Teen spectators will enter, one-by-one, the castle and cross each of the rooms. Entering the enchanted castle will be as entering the dreaming mind of the sleeping maiden. Each room is an episode of her dream: the spaces described in the fairy tale take on a dreamlike-surreal connotation and the images and sounds blend in with the sleeping teen’s internal monologue which ponders on her age.
