The Company

Contemporary Circus Company from 1997

Aims of the company

  • Promotion of the art of innovative circus for children and adults
  • Theatre, music and circus workshops
  • Promotion and production of theatrical, musical and contemporary circus shows
  • Organization of cultural events, public events of Theatre, Music and Contemporary Circus

To achieve this, the Company has collaborated and collaborates with various associations and theatre cooperatives, regional multidisciplinary circuits, municipal administrations, schools, promoting shows, readings, refresher courses and workshops.

Actors, musicians and circus artists, Nando and Maila are among the first to found a company of contemporary circus that experiments with the mingling of languages when there was still no real movement of contemporary circus in Italy, nor circus schools. This stimulated an absolutely original, innovative and personal approach to research, putting into play the experience gained in various backgrounds (music, theatre and dance) rather than an academic circus training. The fusion of languages is recognizable in the characters on stage, who play music and articulate circus techniques in an attempt that makes the need to draw boundaries substantially useless. For us, live music has a key poetic role, we try to merge circus action with musical performance, in a single gesture, and we propose an understandable, transversal and accessible dramaturgy to the most heterogeneous audience possible.

In 2011 the company founded the School of Educational Ludic Circus “ARTinCIRCO” in Ozzano dell’Emilia.

Since 2016 the Company has curated the artistic direction of the Contemporary Circus Festival “Dulcamara Circus”. The Festival aims to propose a poetic line in harmony with our research that wants to enhance the performing arts and the fusion of languages. The goal is to create an innovative cultural offer in the area where our Association operates (Ozzano dell’Emilia and neighboring municipalities). The initiative aroused a lot of curiosity and was rewarded with a lot of participation.

In May 2018 the Company debuted in the Artistic Direction of the Contemporary Circus Festival “ARTinCIRCO Festival”, another annual appointment on the territory of Ozzano dell’Emilia (BO).

In September 2018 they debuted the show “Cabaret circense”.

In June 2019 the Company debuted the show “Tunes for tubes” and won the “Award for the continuity and growth of the artistic path of the Company” at the Mirabilia Festival (Fossano – CN).
