Due to bad weather conditions on Monte Tamaro, the performance has been moved to the LAC's Hall and the beginning was brought forward to 10.30 a.m.

Focused on the close relationship between dance and the landscape, Nicola Galli’s new creation is a site-specific performance conceived specifically for the evocative Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli on Monte Tamaro, designed by the architect Mario Botta.

Cosmorama is a gestural universe that opens up in an itinerant and diffuse journey, guided by two dancers that create an invisible and mimetic dance becoming a crossroad between the reliefs and the natural and artificial elements of the landscape.
Between far and close views, physical proximity and panoramic distance, lines, vanishing points and counterpoints, Cosmorama welcomes the audience into a dance experience in nature, overturning the hierarchy of the gaze and accompanying in a collective ascent to rediscover living, observing, constructing and dancing together in the landscape.
