Ten Dancers and a Film of the Productions TIZIANA ARNABOLDI:

the COMPANY after 30 YEARS

"What I look for is the truth. I'm interested in is bringing life to the scene, aiming for the essence, penetrating secrets and intimacy, revealing fears and uncertainties." 
Tiziana Arnaboldi

* * * Saturday and Sunday sold out * * *

read all

In thirty years of work, the Compagnia Tiziana Arnaboldi has explored social, existential and aesthetic themes at an international level. It has been a relentless research, based around the body seen as an artistic object, bringing to the stage, with the help of a little irony, the dilemmas of the human being and the world we live in.

Finally, a never seen before film will follow, created in collaboration with CISA (Conservatory of Audio-Visual Sciences), featuring emblematic scenes from the Company's 30 years of dance.

A new season is about to begin, featuring a rich programme designed to let you experience Teatro San Materno in all its artistic beauty, as our research continues, a journey punctuated by encounters, gestures and enlightening dialogues. We look forward to seeing you.

ALI

With Teatro La Ribalta

Dance-theatre show which offers reflections on diversity and what we would like to be 'normal'.
Ali tells of the encounter between a somewhat pessimistic and disillusioned, but ordinary young man, and an individual with two red wounds on his shoulders, a fallen angel who wants to suffer and to love as all human beings do.

The Sound between Classical Music and Experimental Jazz

World Premiere

ANDREAS SCHAERER and his Band

read all

Residence at Teatro San Materno

Andreas Schaerer – vocals, beatboxing, composition
Andreas Tschopp – trombone, tuba
Matthias Wenger – alto saxophone, flute
Benedikt Reising – baritone saxophone, bass clarinet
Marco Müller – bass
Christoph Steiner – marimba, drums

They don't like to call themselves a real band but rather ... a storm (ein Sturm)!
A Swiss avant-garde Jazz band, the sextet was formed in 2005 based around the initiative and compositions of band leader Andreas Schaerer, a simply incredible, charismatic artist, who boasts an extraordinary voice. Schaerer, it should be remembered, is without doubt one of the finest and most original jazz singers to be found on the European scene. He was able to win over the prestigious KKL Hall (alongside the Lucerne Symphony orchestra) to such an extent that one commentator described it as "a new wind of folly blowing through vocal improvisation".
