Au bout des doigts

Piergiorgio Milano [Be/It]

Climbing – slackline – vertical dance – live music
Completely powered by solar energy

Au Bout des Doigts is a dance performance challenging verticality through the elegance and unpredictability of sport climbing.

Each cliff in the mountains, wall or building in the city has its own aesthetics and character which forces the performers to discover its secret passages and hidden movements.

A highly aesthetic and spectacular show, adaptable to any location that offers vertical support, be it a rock face or an urban environment.

«The moment you start climbing, you realize that the rock has been shaped by wind, water and time for millions of years. And suddenly, as the hand closes on a small ledge, you discover that you are no longer just dancing on the wall, but that with every finger grip, or foot support, the whole history of the earth is dancing around you.»

The company

Piergiorgio Milano [Be/It]

Choreographer, dancer and acrobat

“My choreographic language is the result of years of research into the encounter between dance, theatre and circus arts. My performances are characterised by a strong theatrical aestheticism on which dance can rely and develop in full freedom of poetry and virtuosity. I am situated on the border between different arts, categories or disciplines; it is in the tendency to go beyond this border that I find the strength that will feed my creative processes. I dedicate myself entirely to this so that my work will be the fruit of this radical contamination between dance, circus and theatre.”


Piergiorgio Milano has worked and collaborated with many international artists including: James Thiérrée, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Rodrigo Pardo, David Zambrano, Roberto Olivan, Raffaella Giordano and Boris Gibé, for whom he plays the second cast of his show L’Absolu. He created and directed the choreography for the film “Il Flauto Magico”, produced by the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio and Paco Cinematografica Roma.

He teaches physical theatre and contemporary dance in various European schools and companies, including: SEAD University of Contemporary Dance, Salzburg; Danscentrumjette, Brussels; Athens Video Dance Festival; Tripspace, London; Université du sport de Chambéry; Opus Ballet – Florence; École de cirque de Lomme, Lille; Le Lido, Toulouse Circus School; Flic, Turin Circus School.
