Peradam sees choreographer and dancer Francesca Foscarini and the Kronoteatro company collaborating for the first time in a joint project. Together the artists tackle the creative process by each bringing their own skills and specificities into play, embracing the horizontality of the relationship, they bring to the stage the questions and visions that strong are animating their research.
The major themes from which Foscarini and Kronoteatro began to take their first steps revolve around the sense of bewilderment of this time, the desire to return to question existential concepts such as: free will, the relationship between the individual and society as a plot within which one moves protected within the rules established by the system, or phagocytised by them one lives like ghosts, the inevitable confrontation with those unfathomable places of the body and soul: of death and birth, as well as of life after death, and life before life.
Kronoteatro was founded in Albenga in 2004. Since then it has produced 20 shows that have been hosted in the most important national theater festivals and seasons. In 2018 it presented its own solo show at the 46th Venice Theatre Biennale. It is a production company recognized by MiC since 2015.
