Multilove//Sunshine is a sequence of micro-actions in which young performers will act within non-specific areas, creating a mechanism of adaption among place, movement and audience. The work consists of independent, intersecting and coexisting actions, that re-imagine the theatre space.
Starting from an urgency, each author-performer has investigated a gesture: some actions arise from the choice and subsequent exploration of a space, others from a research on movement, others from the use of specific theatrical mechanisms, dismantled and overturned.
The project also has a profound nature of talent scouting, which arises from the need to record actions that have not yet become something concrete.
This is why the project is preceded by a workshop in which performers will relate to each other as sharing experience of the various performative art languages.
