Vertical Theatre brings together theatre and circus, dance and music, and new technologies. Adapted to impressive vertical locations, eVenti Verticali inspires investigations of force, gravity, balance and architecture. In a slow game of changing perceptions: the horizontal and vertical planes intertwine in a sort of perspective illusion.
