A struggle hidden in the folds of a jacket

Piergiorgio Milano [Be/It]

Acrobatic dance

Denti is the Italian word for “teeth”. In many ancient cultures the loss of teeth is connected with the loss of a loved one, whith the feeling of jealousy and the urgency to leave one’s home country. Denti makes a sensible journey through physical sensations and memories, a struggle between the impossibility to leave and the wish to forget.

Denti is what remains.
It is the voice that we still believe to hear.
It is the wish to keep what is gone, to chase, to bite, to growl.
Denti is a dramatically funny piece.

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.
