Angels over the city

Angels over the city

Teatro Potlach - Fara in Sabina, Italy

Director: Pino Di Buduo

Without breaks.

Teatro Potlach was founded in 1976 by Pino Di Buduo and Daniela Regnoli and takes its name from the anthropological studies of the founders. In the language of the indigenous peoples of North-Western America it refers to the free gift which gives honour and prestige to those who give it and those who receive it as well, in this way going beyond the laws of the market and of profit.

Angels over the city is a show that changes the heart of a town through an itinerary based on the features of that particular place. It’s a traveling show where the audience meets angels/artists coming from different artistic fields just to make people re-discover forgotten sensations, words, feelings and to evoque the beauty and the charm of the town.  A budapesti előadásba a Kaposvári Egyetem színésznövendékei is bekapcsolódnak.

Actors and artists (Angels over the city) will dance on the walls, tell stories and let spectators see something normally invisible to their eyes and senses.
