Compagnia Naturalis Labor


Naturalis Labor wanted to open the doors to young people to offer them the opportunity to learn about and experiment with their work from the inside and share a new experience entirely dedicated to those who may be future dancers. The choreographer Silvia Bertoncelli then set up Naveneva, her contemporary dance show dedicated to the younger audience, with a cast of very young performers selected from among dance schools throughout the Veneto. Thirteen interpreters from eight to 12 years offer us with this Naveneva Kids moments of great emotion and great quality. Unique project in Italy that Naturalis Labor wants to propose in other regions with young dancers from the area.

And over the course of thirty years some of Bertoncelli's works have fascinated him: first and foremost the successful navenevaKids, a re-fitting in collaboration with the Festival dance in the net of the previous Naveneva with 13 children under 12 years of age who are among the dance schools of the whole Veneto. An inventive jewel in which the little dancers are overwhelmed by marine adventures between storms and battles and encounters with extravagant creatures in a flurry of choral dances performed as true professionals.
