On the stage, six dancers move, flying through the air to create unreal figures! Inspired by the marvels of Baroque theater and supported by modern technological resources, Emiliano Pellisari, is the inventor of a unique art of choreography, at the crossroads of magic, illusion and circus. The dancers will defy gravity by creating extraordinary images that appear from the darkness in a non-stop parade of effects. Be prepared to enter a world where the real and the virtual are mixed in a kaleidoscope of amazing pictures. This unbelievable show combines the design of light, music and special effects with dance, athletic circus and pantomime. Inspired by the most famous Canto by Dante, involving Escher and Magritte in the surrealist universe, Pellisari leads in a daydream of astonishing beauty.

The music will be played live on the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ by world-renowned, award winning, organist, Alan Morrison.
