In#visible is a multidisciplinary poetic and visual performance to tell and dance the mental and geographical space of the city, to tell and dance the body in the city, to tell and dance the body of the city.

In#visible is freely inspired by the Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino. The show mixes dance, circus, music and digital arts. This new project is in the multidisciplinary demarche that characterize the Heliotropion company.

On stage a dancer/ singer, a musician, two acrobats/dancers and a videographer will play with the interactions between body, images and sound in real time.

How visible and invisible fit together in our imagination and how we picture the city itself?

How dance and acrobatics assemble the same stakes in the body, in a common need in each motion, as a supporting structure to help turn to others and explore the relations be-tween intimacy and space.
