UP & Down | with Paolo Ruffini and the actors of the Compagnia Mayor Von Frinzius
"This show also talks about you, only you don't know yet ..."

A comic, disobedient and moving happening, whose main theme is relationships, including the one with emotions, with time, with diversity.
Paolo Ruffini is on stage with the disabled actors of the Mayor Von Frinzius Company (five of them with Down Syndrome, one with autism and one in a wheelchair).
The skeleton of the show is built on the intention of the protagonist to create an extraordinary One Man Show, with impressive sets and special effects. But part of a series of boycotts and daring interruptions in which the actors break into showing that they are much better than him.
The irony filter investigates the meaning of skill and disability, not related to the genetic condition, but rather to happiness. Reflecting on how many people exist who are not able to listen, to beauty, but who, regardless of the number of chromosomes, are all differently able, differently normal and normally different.
UP & Down is a fiercely comic show, which spares no one and nothing, and which also tells a certain kind of resilience: the ability to transform the limit into opportunity.
A representation with surreal connotations and unexpected developments with a strong connotation of improvisation, which interrupts theatrical liturgies and offers the public a real experience in which the distances between stage and audience are canceled, and actors and spectators find themselves to share a revolutionary gesture: a big hug.
The 2018 tour saw 50 performances in 42 theaters, with a total of 38 sold out and over 45 thousand tickets sold. The 2019 tour is back by popular demand with over 70 scheduled replicas.
The replica recorded at the Teatro Verdi on November 20th aired in prime time on Italia1 on December 25, 2018, recording over one million viewers.
