In addition to the Company’s permanent members, numerous other dancers join the core group from time to time, according to the various projects. 

The choreographic language with which Loris Petrillo creates the Company’s vast repertory is clearly the result of his own personal path, contaminated by different artistic languages ranging from Capoeira to Northern European physical theatre, alongside a research program determined by the physicality and personality of each of his dancers. Emerging from this mixture is a Company characterized by a strong physical, expressive, as well as technical, impact and whose repertory deals with themes and topics that are always politically, culturally and socially aware.

With this in mind, we wish to cite: Powder (2018), a consciousness-raising of the inconsistency of the human life, Don Quijote (2015), an ode to resistance and a symbolic journey in the depths of life, Van Gogh (2013) a strongly expressive choreographic work born from a clinic analysis about the supposed madness of the artist, 1+1=1, an experimental investigation about the relation sound/movement/mathematics, M.Carnedellamiacarne (2010), a journey through the female mind, La pelle del popolo nudo (2008), a re-evocation of Sicily after World War II, Il cece nel secchio (2006) dealing with the true identity of madness; Spostamento obbligato (2005) an attentive reflection upon the emigration problems of populations; Bobby Sands (2004) a denunciation of the condition of political prisoners in Ireland; Il tango della depressione (2003) an ironic portrayal of matrimonial troubles; Il Racconto della Sposa (2003) about the female social condition.
