Within the Cultural Association, instituted in 2006, we bring together the experience of a group of artists who have been working for years in Great Britain, Switzerland, Holland, and Italy, creating the company's shows and performances. The common characteristic of all these performances is the lack of a written theatre script at their starting point: on the contrary, they are all the result of the combined work of the ensemble. The contributions made by the various participants interact and contrast with each other from different points of view - everyday life, dreams, life and death - and in the widest range of art forms, including action, movement, music, and video.

Nannerl, sorella di Mozart
(Nannerl, Mozart’s Sister) 2014
Nannerl, sorella di Mozart inspired by the dice game Mozart used for improvisation, plays between comic and tragic, sound and movement, between a brother and a sister, a male and a female.
Trilogy of Absence comprises of three performances that interact and engage with the theme of losing and winning, its relationship with time and in all its different dynamics, in and out of reality. The question is addressed from different perspectives and develops in different spaces and places of the Tenuta Dello Scompiglio.
Tesorino, perché hai perso?
(Sweetheart, Why did you Lose?) 2006-2009
The performance originates and develops around the ironic absurdity of winning and losing, and how both of these exert excessive influence on our self-esteem and on the concept of success in our culture. The performance takes place in the Performance Space, in a face to face relationship between actors and audience.
Riflessi in Bianco e Nero
(Reflections in Black and White) 2010
Is a journey in four stages focused on loss and memory, that winds through various locations of the Tenuta, moving between action and installation, where the public and the performers sometimes end up mixed together.
Kind of Blue
the last part of the Trilogy - is currently in development in one of the exhibition rooms. The interpreters of the first two parts become themselves the subjects of a film. They tell their secrets and talk about their bodies as imperfect casings. At the same time as the video installation, in a live scene, a turret and an astronaut who can no longer distinguish between true and false, between real and fictional characters, between the past and the present, reality and imagination.
(Simple Act) 2011
Atto semplice is a physical theatre performance that revolves around the revelation, the awakening. In a static space one pedestal, like an island. A statue, butterflies, abandoned objects, fragments crystalised in time, enchanted in soliloquies.
(Revolving Door) 2006
The Compagnia Dello Scompiglio played the performance Porta Girevole on the 3rd and 4th November 2010 at the Teatro della Limonaia in Sesto Fiorentino (Florence), during the festival "Dinamiche scomposte 2010" - artistic project Company Blu.
