The latest work of Aerites takes off where “d.opa!” and “Era poVera” ended. It maintains the spirit of navigating the urban labyrinth. The collective mind and body of the city is the raw material, which the team draws upon. This time these elements are re-evaluated so that the concepts of the streets and wandering (dérive) include the foreigner, the immigrant, the person who travels whether by choice or by force. We speak then of the path which is chosen and on which civilizations are mixed and created through their mediators, the people. For the “Planites” project the complexion of the streets changes. They become a place of wandering and search for a better tomorrow, the melting pot of the foreign and the separate, the embodiment and incorporation of force and exile. Planites are people of the world. They travel and carry with them stories and experiences from the past in order to adapt to a foreign way of life without losing their own identity. They are the contemporary immigrants; they are the citizens of the world.
Performance not recommended to audiences under the age of 12.
