The summer program: InStabile becomes the stage of World Music and the contemporary circus in Florence
The summer program will start on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 June. In two days a tour of the musical world touching Brazilian, Colombian and African sounds.
On Friday 10th Pulsar will be on stage: a group of young people who, with only recycled percussion, bring to light the South American sound of the Brazilian batucada with contaminations from similar styles. To them are added the Super Cumbia y la Liga de la Alegrìa, a group that dedicates 100% of its time traveling to all continents, "planting the Energy of Cumbia del Monte", a powerful rhythm capable of instantly exorcising from bad habits.
On Saturday 11th, however, it is the turn of Sandro Joyeux, researcher of sounds from the world. The artist with “a million kilometers guitar on his shoulders”, builds bridges between different cultures by singing in distant languages, from the Bambara of Mali to the Urdu of Pakistan.
Within the vast summer program, the Renaissance InStabile review stands out, created with the contribution of the Municipality of Florence as part of Summer Fiorentina 2022. Free contemporary circus concerts and shows with exceptional artists who see the collaboration between Tuscan cultural spaces and Emilian within the TransAppenninica ARTRIS project: three spaces in artistic connection and with a high creative impact in movement between spaces of woods and cities. These include InStabile Chapiteau, Acrobatic Workshop and Montagò Artris. A journey and an artistic synergy that allows the art of the circus and music to move between Florence, Bologna and Grizzana Morandi and sow good seeds.
The program kicks off on Friday 17 June with the Bologna Bridge Band, a brass band that takes inspiration from the rich musical tradition of New Orleans. A style characterized by the spontaneity of early jazz that is enriched by adding a good dose of funk and hip-hop. This mix of genres, accompanied by eccentric and colorful choreography and outfits, evoke the singular atmosphere of New Orleans parties and parades where the public is as involved and involved as the musicians.
Saturday 18 June La Sbrindola arrives, a contemporary circus and music company with Shock 'em all. A delusional piece, a duel between a juggler and a drummer: a frenzied rhythmic and musical research on the one hand, a bizarre, bodily and extrovert juggling on the other. And with "Vibrella Sound" it was born among the worst streets of the best festivals in Europe: two eccentric characters arrive pedaling with the specific intent of unleashing a dancefloor.
The collaboration with TransAppenninica ARTRIS ends on Saturday 16 July with Circo Pacco: “an incredibly serious show”, including clowns, physical theater, comic magic, juggling and eccentric acrobatics. On stage Frank Duro and Gustavo Leumann. Rejected by the “Nouveau Cirque” and radiated from the classical circus, the two eccentric figures have no choice but to create their own circus: the Circo Pacco. In an attempt to set up their show they try to gain the stage and captivate the audience.
The Renaissance InStabile program continues on Tuesday 5 July with Fischermanns Orchestra, a Swiss band of 10 musicians for an experimental research with Jazz and World Music sounds. The music of this ensemble is characterized by the musical versatility of its members, who by combining their personal experiences, bring sounds and nuances of the world, from South American music to African music, also experimenting with contemporary forms of improvisation. Since its formation in 2007 the band has performed throughout the European continent.
On July 8 it is the turn of Jembaa Groove, a German group of 7 afro-soul elements based in Berlin founded in late 2020 by Yannick Nolting (bass, composer, producer) and Eric Owusu (voice, percussion, songwriter). The two artists united by a stylistic and musical research that looks at the Berlin underground scene with contaminations of soul rhythms, the traditional sounds of West Africa and black America of the 70s, approach contemporary sounds by collaborating with well-known artists such as Ebo Taylor and Pat Thomas, Lee Fields and Ikebe Shakedown.
On 12 July MagdaClan Extra Small, the extra small team of the MagdaClan company, born from the desire to return to the open, on the street and in the square, to attract proselytes and an audience of faithful, presents the SIC TRANSIT show, with Alessandro Maida.
Finally, on 19 and 20 July Cie Rampante. From Spain an Argentine contemporary circus company that creates a mix of theater, dance, circus and humor in a very personal and unique way. He will present the ROCOCO 'show, a singular creation characterized by the strong blend of techniques (acrobatics, juggling, cyr wheel and humor) offering a very versatile show with strong, dynamic and visual body language.
The food and wine activity in Instabile
InStabile Estate opens every day from 18.30 until 02, at sunset aperitifs and special cocktails to then move on to dinner at the restaurant with both traditional Tuscan and vegan dishes, pizzeria with wood oven built in terracruda and a grill with zero km meat and seasonal vegetables.

Instabile is a cultural center on the banks of the Arno open 12 months a year
In the next winter season (starting from October) the path, already started this year, of supporting creation through artistic residencies will continue, including:
StoryVille Cafè Concert, musical cabaret set in the 20s / 40s of the 900. StoryVille wants to be a moment of historical and cultural study told through music and cabaret that brings to the stage still current issues such as discrimination of gender, origin, expression. The voices of Storyville want to be a sounding board that brings the stories back to attention, from Trio Lescano to Billie Holiday, with songs from Sweet Georgia Brown (Dixieland Tunes) (1925) to Doctor Jazz, who wants to tell less known anecdotes and events of artistic and cultural censorship, in a bimonthly event.
Cabaret Quixote, a journey into the extraordinary world of Don Quixote between dreams, visions and extra-ordinary characters where it is possible to meet the madman and not distinguish him from the ordinary, where reality and dream can be exchanged and open questions remain about the absurdity of reality. The Cabaret will become a bimonthly appointment with characters always present and at the same time open to all artists, established or emerging, who want to present their number or try new artistic proposals in synergy with what will spontaneously be created. Cabaret Quixote will be a container and a meeting place for the circus and theater scene in Tuscany.
The Master and Margherita. A new production by Teatro dell'Elce and Aria Network Culturale directed by Marco di Costanzo and Daniele Favilli which will focus on the creation of a show with the interaction of theatrical and circus languages.
Courses and seminars, already organized in recent months with a cycle "Immersion in the arts of the scene", will continue starting from October.
The program is already in the pipeline, and will soon be available on the website and on the social pages of InStabile. There will be contemporary circus courses for beginners and advanced levels, for children, adolescents and adults of all ages, including: acrodanza, Chinese pole, trapeze, juggling; theater, dance (tap, contemporary, afro, classical), rhythmic and singing orchestras, and holistic practices of wellness and reactivation of the body. At the bistro will continue courses in herbal medicine, food and environmental education.
