DENTI – A struggle hidden in the folds of a jacket

Acrobatic dance

On tour

All spaces indoors & outdoors

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.

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. »
