Paradiso is a collective project of the contemporary research dance company nanou group, of the artist Alfredo Pirri and of the musician Bruno Dorella .

From 17 June to 02 July, from 6PM to 8PM and from 9PM to 10.30PM, every day except Mondays.

The space is intended as an active place in which to immerse oneself, creating an impromptu community that accesses the performance as it happens in a museum exhibition. open from 18.00 to 20.00 and from 21.00 to 22.30, a performance in which the public enters and exits freely from the space, moving through the performative space.
At the entrance, there is a bar, a refreshment corner to encourage the creation of a community, a moment of contemplation dedicated to watching.

Paradisois the beginning of a common journey starting from Third Canticle of Dante Alighieri’s Commedia; as a paradise, it is an elsewhere space, inhabited by light and evanescent figures; a long cinematic shot in which to immerse yourself thanks to the music of Bruno Dorella - for a choreography in synergy with visual art that will find its final version in 2022.

The stage space consists of a mirrored dance floor obtained by combining different layers of silver and gold carpets where reverberating spaces and territories intertwined and choreographed by gruppo nanou.
Indirect lighting allows the carpet to reflect the surrounding space, visually welcoming it inside and creating a floating perception, making the floor a pond where bodies fall apart between evanescent contours.

The place determines from time to time the use and arrangement of the scene created by Alfredo Pirri ; the space, as well as the bodies and the light, is reflected by the mirrored surface of the carpets, redesigning the geometry of the space itself. Due to this identity of relationship between place and scene, each Paradiso is unique and unrepeatable, thus finding it impossible to describe a Paradiso in a univocal way, as Dante writes at the beginning of the third canticle.
