Everytopia in the here and now

with Jerszy Seymour

An artist working in Berlin, journeying through design, performance, and theatrical events, in love with total, non-totalitarian art.
Tiziana Arnaboldi invited the artist for a residence with two of his students and alongside two very young dancers, Brice Arside and Yann Dorsaz. Jerszy Seymour transforms space and his desire is to provide us, as humans, with a path of reflection on how we inhabit the planet as well as our minds.

In collaboration with Lisa Ferretti.

5 - 8.11, doors open to onlookers from 3 to 5 p.m.

A New Creation by Compagnia Tiziana Arnaboldi

AUTOUR DU CORPS A Bauhaus Tribute

A cosmic trip, in dialogue with the earth, where everything revolves around a body dressed in nine concentric circles, pulsating and breathing: a special skirt, which takes us on a dreamlike and hypnotic trip based on shapes, bodies, balance and imbalance, as well as heaviness and breath, in an allegory of our human condition.
