In response to the current tendency to separate age groups, Protein’s intergenerational performance projects provide an opportunity to share experiences and cultures across generations with the ultimate goal of creating an understanding about who we are and what we know about the others.
Turning the physical and experiential challenges of a cross-generational project into significant instruments of social cohesion and theatrical beauty, we brought communities closer to dance as both participants and audiences.
Since Creola (2000) to Alfresco (2005), and via the different Crossroads editions, Luca has developed an open format where personal stories, cultural traits and local traditions have made every production a unique and relevant live painting of a locality and its people.
