On tour

site specific performance for climbing site or walls – in the mountains or in the city

Au Bout des Doigts is a dance performance that challenges 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 spectacular and poetic performance that could be resized and adapted to almost any vertical surface; shifting from a big impressive event to a smaller and more intimate performance.

“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.” Johnny Dawes

Piergiorgio Milano  [Be – It]
Choreographer, dancer, acrobat

«My choreographic language is the result of years of research on connecting dance, theater and circus arts. My shows are characterized by strong theatrical aesthetics, which the dance can lean on and develop in full freedom of poetry and virtuosity. I place myself on the line between different arts, categories and disciplines. It’s in trying to go beyond that line that I find the strength that feeds my creative processes. »
