A theatre-dance performance thought for an audience of any age, already become a classic. Michele Abbondanza and Antonella Bertoni alternate themselves between being parents and kids, and then father and son, mother and daughter, and then siblings, especially siblings, and they alternate the suffering and the rebelling, the defending and the protecting themselves, the escaping and the coming back and the being kidnapped forever without coming back: in short, living. A dedication to all those who cannot do witohout love.

ABBONDANZA/ BERTONI COMPANY since 1989, year of the first night with their signature, Michele Abbondanza and Antonella Bertoni traced a path that today unquestionably identifies them as the teachers of the italian theare-dance. With the Company Abbondanza Bertoni, whose they're founders, they explored the most different poetry, though being always loyal to a very personal and recognisable coreographic and human vocabulary. Their dance is not an easy dance, which seek the unconditioned consent and the praise of the audience; it's a dance that make questions without giving answers, that move and falter, undermining certainites and preconceptions in order to carry the audience into a journey that will have inevitabily uncertain outcome. In the 19/20 theatrical season the company has been on stage at PimOff with Erectus.
