A small tribe of actors and circus performers bring to life a fictional ritual that will carry the public away.

“Among the most interesting realities of the Italian scene.“ Danza&Danza

CollettivO CineticO, winner of the UBU Award 2017 for Best Dance Performance for Sylphidarium (programmed by Triennale Teatro dell’Arte in 2017) presents Benvenuto Umano, last and long-expected production which celebrates the company’s tenth year of activity. The performance is the conclusion of the long-term challenge C/o project, initiated in 2007 with the establishment of the company.
All of Francesca Pennini’s precious elements seem to reappear in this new production. The performers give life to a ritual invented to celebrate and reconnect worlds that are both close and far away: traditional Chinese medicine, Japanese design, anatomy and astrology, paganism and circus, symbols and iconographies inspired by the mysterious frescos of the Salone dei Mesi at the Palazzo Schifanoia in Ferrara.

A project by Triennale Teatro dell’Arte and Teatro Franco Parenti.


CollettivO CineticO was born in 2007 and is directed by choreographer Francesca Pennini in collaboration with more than fifty artist coming from various disciplines.
