Sound waves and musical waves, subtle and energetic waves, sea tides and underground waves, tree roots and flocks of birds, people in street demonstrating and new intentions. Each note corresponds to a resonance, to each pulse there is an echo.

The full evening choreographic concert WE CAN BE WAVES is a live music and dance show, created on the Folk Songs by Luciano Berio and newly written music by Samuel Hertz, composer winner of the DARE Art Prize BBC UK 2017. A group of musicians, singers and dancers find themselves in a seemingly unfit theater, with the intention of reorganizing and give new life to that place, transforming it. During the work, musical waves begin to permeate the bodies and actions of the characters, creating narratives, dances and images that had remained invisible until then.

WE CAN BE WAVES is winner of the production prize Macerata 4.0 at Macerata Opera Festival in Italy.

“An incredible life force emerges from this music theatre evening. It hits you and doesn’t go away.”
