On Tuesday 14 September the theater returns to the fore with Daniele Favilli, an eclectic Florentine actor and director, who, after years of work in Los Angeles, returns to Florence to present the national premiere of his latest show: "The Blood of Macbeth", an exciting immersion in the disconcerting actuality of an immortal classic.



Diversity of languages, artistic disciplines and unpredictable mixes for reckless tales with the body, with music and with words. These are the main ingredients of Cirk Fantastik, the contemporary circus festival that continues until 19 September at the Parco delle Cascine Piazzale del Re with numerous and unmissable events.

Over the weekend that has just passed, numerous shows sold out at the Teatro delle Foglia, the tent of the homonymous company that is hosting the Festival's shows.

In the second week of programming, an important novelty immediately stands out. In fact, on Tuesday 14 September the theater returns to the Cirk Fantastik with Daniele Favilli, an eclectic Florentine actor and director, who, after years of work in Los Angeles, returns to Florence to present the national premiere of his latest show: "The Blood of Macbeth" , a captivating immersion in the disconcerting actuality of an immortal classic.
The exciting mise-en-scène and supported by engaging music, transports the viewer into a world of thrilling passions in which intellectual ruminations are swept away by a sanguine and brutal vitality directed to the deepest emotions. Involving himself in the Shakespearean drama, "The Blood of Macbeth" brings to light its central fulcrum: the pain and consequences that two spouses wishing to have children face when they are unable to have them (September 14 - 8:30 pm - show suitable for a public aged 12 and over).

After being staged on Monday 13th, Alessandro Riccio's Tedavi '98 brings back “Company rhythms”: in this show a successful entrepreneur hires three workers to work in his factory. The three are experts, valid workers, attentive and tireless. Rhythm, on the assembly line, is everything. Timing and attention are essential in the factory. And our contractor knows that his workers need to work hard to get results. This is why he encourages them to do better and better, more and more, ever faster. But that's not enough, unfortunately. Therefore, to increase production - and therefore profit - the entrepreneur is willing to do anything. Even to squeeze his men to the last limit (September 15).
Alessandro Riccio has always loved to create collaborations with artists who were not purely theatrical actors. On this occasion he engages in a show where the theatricality is contaminated by juggling and body percussion.

Among the shows to mark on the agenda also "Gretel". The new creation of Quattrox4 is an accurate investigation into fragility, failure and utopia through a precise, dreamlike and fabulous aesthetic of the body. The aerial rope enlarges and modifies fragile balances between body and objects, low and high, small and large, opening up to an unexpected and surreal range of possibilities (September 15).

Theater in the Leaves - protagonist in the opening days of the Festival with "Kairos - Symphony of time" - staged two other shows: "Ballad of Autumn" (September 16), a modern fairy tale in which the poetry of puppetry and improvisation of street theater, conveyed by the universal language of the body, gaze and shadows, and "La Dolce Follia" (17/18/19 September), an engaging and exciting show, including acrobatics in the air and on the ground, juggling with balls of all sizes, tango and comedy.

Failing or succeeding, is it that important? This is the question posed by the protagonist of “Bakéké” (17/18/19 September), the show of the Frizzo company that drags the audience into an absurd and dreamlike world in the face of enigmas and unexpected events.
With "Davaii" the company Da Circ offers the public a tribute to the circus between knives and cello. Two gypsy friends invite the public to help them fix their walking house and their hearts. An absurd mix of humor, acrobatics and visual poetry, accompanied by the musical skill of a cellist (18/19 September).

Also in the second week of the Festival at the Parco delle Cascine there will be a second scenic location, namely the Politeama / Mobile theaters en plein air project developed around the CamionTeatro. In accordance with the rules of social distancing, groups of 70 people at a time are invited into this space, to first observe the Emotional Theaters (electromechanical theaters for one person at a time) and then attend the welcome concert and the performances of Contemporary Figure Theater. During the day there are several replicas of each show "Manoviva" and "Antipodi" from the afternoon until the evening. The two stages, raised to 80cm from the ground allow a perfect field of vision in the open air, respect the rules of social distancing.

A common feature of the Girovago and Rondella and Dromosophista companies - promoters of this space - is the pleasure of creating a spontaneous and surprising form of communication. With the Politeama project they compose together a meeting place between two generations of artists and between companies and between the territory that invites them. In Florence reduced tickets for Coop and Arci members, children under 12, over 65, family (adult with child).

Free circus workshops for children are provided for the entire duration of the Festival. New this year the Music Lab of the Pippolo Music School, to learn about notes with colors, try musical instruments but above all play with music during Cirk Fantastik !.
Designed for younger children who come with their parents to the Festival, the workshop combines play with notes and will be followed by Lorenzo Hugolini, teacher of the Pippolo Music School.
