Leonardo is the inspiration for the show: his life and artistic work, seen in historicalcontext. We have set ourselves an ambitious challenge - to evoke a visionary genius!
Our intention is not to describe his life, but to pay homage. The show invites its audience on a journey into the fifteenth-century world of the Italian Renaissance. On stage there are three dancers. Three characters. But who are they?
Perhaps they are three muses, hovering in the air of the master’s studio. With humour and ingenuity they take us on a poetic yet mischievous exploration into his creative processes: involving research, play, imagination and truth. This highly visual show will take us through one day in Leonardo’s bottega.
To introduce children to Leonardo da Vinci is to open up for them a unique artistic universe. Our aspiration is to evoke for them the scope of his genius through the medium of dance.
