Digitale Purpurea (Foxgloves): herbaceous plant whose flowers are arranged in clusters, pendants, tubular terminals, of a color which varies from purple to pink, yellow or white.
The essence of foxgloves can be used as a drug to treat heart failure. In excessive doses the plant is highly toxic and can be deadly for humans.

Digitale Purpurea I is the research of a continuous dance between movement and sound, constant mutation of dynamics and presence.
The dance takes place through a study of the movement in terms of speed and time, while encountering live music and lights.
The choreography is designed as a counterpoint to the physical score, sound and light, and as a concert of these elements.
The movement is a stream, a continuous flowing forced to face the forms in order to engage the viewer in a common area of great power.
Designed as a modular project that can vary its shape and number of performers depending on the context.
The forces of nature and its dynamics are the main engine for the dance, its textures and its contrasts.
