Introducing a performance beyond time, the discovery of a new world or is it the rediscovery of an old one? A reality to explore and lose ourselves in. Taking us on a journey to find our own way, our own place of belonging, our own identity.​

Two shadows rise up from the ground, as memories from a long gone past that reappear. These characters are passengers on a raft that sails through time. They are disconnected from physical or metaphorical meaning and transport us without words inside a unique performance called "Ballata d'Autunno".

When the dark and degraded suburb where the characters initially land, seemingly turns into a forest, they are separated from each other by the wind. Apart from one another, they now have to find their own way, their own place of belonging and their own identity. 

The public embarks on the discovery of a new world, presenting them with a new reality to explore but not uncover. A reality in which they might lose them selves though maybe there was never a destination. 

 

A 60 minutes show full of strong images, with sharp contrasts of light and shadow, warm and cold colors, loud silences and sharp melodies.

Below and above are only words, gravity does not exist, height is measured by imagination.

A tale told with the language of the circus, a journey through fantasy. Learn to dance with your dreams. An aerial acrobatic and theater-circus show.

Dragging along a giant trunk, in a cloud of dust and time yellowed paper, appears Maldimar. Poised between a cartoonish figure and a guttersnip, she invites the spectator to enter into a fantasy world, made of ropes and knots, of every day magic, of gears that do not know what they are moving. Simple gestures that, seen through the eyes of a child, turn into spectacular and majestic acrobatics. Taking even adults into innocent amazement. Below and above are only words,  gravity does not exist and height is measured by pure imagination.

In the world of a child everything makes sense, united by the unique thread of the imagination. Even when alone there is always an imaginary friend ready to play with you. Humor, poetry, improvisation with the public and aerial acrobatics with ropes are the elements that fill the world of Maldimar. For 30 minutes the spectator will feel part of that, afterwards  returning with both feet on the ground and a smile on your face!

A "Tout public" performance with typical street art characters. Yet the Nanirossi show manages to brings a breath of fresh air to the repertoire of Italian street theatre. Something never seen before that only the Nanirossi can offer you.

One of the best street theatre companies in a unique show: a master piece and manifesto of the highest level with a particular identity. Outstanding acrobatics and virtuose juggling, performed with ease, lightness and with an infallible, elegant comic spirit.

In addition to the their skills and professional rigor, the two artists have the enchanting ability to engage the entire community so that each spectator becomes part of the fun.

R4 escape for freedom review: Tommaso Chimenti in Il Fatto Quotidiano:


"[...] The brilliant Nanirossi shake you to the core, unforgettable, unbreakable, imaginative, from tearful smiles to somersaulty bites of light and unpredictable comedy, childish but never banal, always delicate and soft, never aggressive or excessive. In their R4 escape for freedom many codes and mechanisms of cinematic police parodies can be recognised. The kind with scoundrels and imbeciles, absolutely cute and perennial losers (like "Pink Panter" or "Police Academy"), movies in which cars take on human characteristics (like "Herbie the Love Bug" or the animation "Cars") and finally those with plots in which the protagonist is able to escape (like "The Escape from Alcatraz").


In the middle of this explosive mix, the Nanirossi deploy two Starsky & Hutch -like figures who must bring a dangerous prisoner in classical overalls from Guantanamo to prison.
Two stupid guards, a prisoner, smart and crafty like Houdini, and a wrecked car, losing pieces and breathing flames from the engine, are the ingredients of this small and well-managed, tickling topos that tickles, convinces, intrigues, invites us, excites us, stimulates us, enriches us.. Not any car but one that turns into a carnivorous plant, swallowing and biting the guards (as in "The Little Shop of Horrors") are the ingredients of this small and well-managed mix of themes that tickles, convinces, intrigues, invites, excites, stimulates and enriches us. The Nanirossi would go to waste in a small garden but at the Cascine Parc they were explosives. "
