  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.

  Romantic Disaster is an oxymoron, a romantic gaze at the destruction of Nature and at   Nature as a destructive force. 
The stage setting is a live music performance where digital and analog coexist.
Dramaturgy is a concept album that revolves around the dialectic between the climate change of yesterday and climate change of today.
On the one hand the Global Cooling resulting from the eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815 and on the other the Global Warming we are experiencing now.
However, the centre is always occupied by young people: the activists of Fridays for Future and the three young English poets Keats, Byron and Shelley, who knew nothing of Tambora but the bad weather that it largely caused, impelled them to express their concerns in poetry.
Poetry becomes song, music, battle cry. A Hymn to Beauty that must not die and to the young souls who guard it.
