Naufragio con spettatore is the first step from Odisseo. Starting from the idea of the shipwreck the choreographer dealt with concepts like journey, hunger/thirst, death/salvation, lack of space, and with references to Ulysses as a shipwrecked. Treating last but not least the today chronicles, with the continuous migrants’ crossings in the Mediterranean Sea and the consequent and tragic shipwrecks. Interesting suggestions came also from the pictorial work “Le Radeau de la Méduse” by T. Gericault.

It is a nocturnal dance, the one splendidly interpreted by Roberto Provenzano and Fernando Roldan
Ferrer, which reveals itself in the dark after long moments. The choreutic art becomes paint” Alessandro Iachino, Teatro e Critica

Even though the year of production is 2010, “Naufragio con Spettatore” is still telling nowadays,
without words and thanks to the choreography score, about the sea wrecks, the infinite disembarkations on the Italian coasts and our dual indifference” Matteo Brighenti, PAC

Fifty-five minutes of an intense show, with a perfect choreography, thanks to the two prodigious
