About the Vertical Theater. The Vertical Theater stems from vertical dancing Vertical spaces become floors on which the performers, supported by harnesses and suspended on ropes, dance, jump, run, perform…using the walls as orthogonal working surfaces.

We see the Vertical Theatre as a language that brings together different art forms, starting from Theatre and circus, graphics, acrobatics, dance and music, to visual comedy and new technologies. All of these different disciplines get reinvented and adapted to unusual and impressive vertical locations: towers, buildings façades, bell towers, walls, cliffs, trees and great outdoors.

About Us. eVenti Verticali is a cultural sports association aiming to promote an unusual type of Theatre to be performed on vertical and aerial stages.
Origins. Founded in 2006 from an idea of Andrea and Luca Piallini, the association has since then realised courses and shows all around the world promoting the Vertical Theatrein twenty different countries.

The idea of working on vertical surfaces came up in 2003, while performing a rope descent from a window during a show in Gdansk.

This dance production is inspired by Liminality, “a threshold”. Humanistic psychologists describe “the ‘out-of-this-world’ quality associated to liminality a sort of trance-like feeling. Analytical psychologists have often seen the individuation process of self-realization as taking place within a liminal space.

Individuation can be seen as a “movement through liminal space and time, from disorientation to integration…. What takes place in the dark phase of liminality is a process of breaking down…in the interest of “making whole” one’s meaning, purpose and sense of relatedness once more”.

The final result will be a live performance. It will be presented across gallery, stage, and public space.

Dance, sound, visual art and multimedia( July 19 Rehearsal)

Since 2014, Amman based Dance Company Studio 8, has been calling all artists of any discipline (visual, digital, coding, installation, film, photography, painting, art managers, musicians, event managers, students, producers, curators) to work together, to collaborate, to create side by side, loosening boundaries between artistic labels, in favor of a more open and flexible view toward the art experience itself.

Building on this approach, from 18 to 25 of July 2019, Studio 8, made possible by the support of Al Mawreed Al-Thaqafi, organized a production residency bringing together an artist duet of French sound artist François Donato and French/Iranian visual artist Golnaz Behrouznia. and five performers based in Jordan, with the aim to create a concrete project that is crossing borders of genres and disciplines: dance, performance, visual arts, performative arts, animation, projection, coding, etc.

Prior to the residency, six dance artists have developed 15-20 minutes movement sequences. For the first day of the residency, visual artists, sound designer and dance artists shared their thoughts on the movement-design-in-progress, explored the connections between movement and visual arts, performative arts and sound, installations and dance. For the second day, artists met in Osama El Mashini Theater tasked to expand the possibilities of art through the merging of disciplines in an experimental process of collaboration.

Lumina Fiction # 2

It offers a biological fiction at the crossroads of art, biology and computer science.
The installation is presented as a cylindrical giant body in volume, structured in multilayers of translucent fabrics that match the exhibition space. Installed in the darkness, this body welcomes on its material the development of a world of virtual creatures into video images evolving in a sound environment.

ElectroAnima Experiment

In the twilight of the venue, huge projections on an invisible medium transcend the limits of the stage and make float in front of us the bright lines of moving materials or fanciful animated creatures, amplified by constants sound metamorphoses.
