Piergiorgio Milano [Be/It]

site specific creation for beaches and deep waters

Through the collective experience of wonder, the choreography is a reflection on the fragility of coastal and marine ecosystems and our relationship with them.

The protagonist is the sea: as material and as context. The beach, an offended and too often trivialized environment, becomes the theatre: the stage the sea, the backstage the sea bed, the proscenium the shore. It is the sea that remains sacred despite the Anthropocene, a womb to which the performers are drawn, putting into dance their very human nostalgia for a lost harmony. The music finds the sound of the sea on the strings of a viola. The show combines contemporary dance, circus acrobatics, aerial and vertical dance, with solos and choral moments.

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.
