SOGNI IN SCATOLA is a hymn to fantasy in a world of scotches, boxes and packaging. A show where everything is possible. Two small and funny characters will be accomplices of enormous creations, everything in their eyes is giant and oversized as for the eyes of a child.
And it is with this look that they will be able to imagine incredible realities, transporting the public in a fun surreal journey where fantasy is the main ingredient of this mix between circus and theater.
Press review on specialized Italian publications:
On Eolo: “… Here then there is”Sogni in Scatola” by the company Nanirossi, whose success does not need our words, but it is printed sorly in the eyes and in the unbridled laughter of the child who was sitting behind us. Matteo Mazzei and Elena Fresch are two small and funny characters who create, through all the circus arts, without words, the various and multifaceted nuances of the things of life, from joy to love to war, in a world built from cardboard, boxes and packaging , where building the house is the most urgent need, and our two, after a thousand vicissitudes, will make it at the same time a poetic and entertaining show […] (Mario Bianchi).
On Utopia: “[…] I fully agree with the indications of the” Jury of the Boys “who wanted to reward shows where the ludic dimension was put at the center of the project.” Dreams in Box “of the company” Nanirossi “of Massa Carrara was certainly the surprise of the window, a job where things happen and are not only told, with a beautiful scenic system and a game between characters really well done, a job that has captured the attention from the first moment without leaving it by putting the public agreement and operators. […] (Marco Renzi).

The show “Sogni in scatola” comes from the project of the new show of the Nanirossi company.The basic theme of the show are the cardboard boxes and typically the packaging material which literally invade the scene.In fact, the only component of the universe in which the characters evolve is the cardboard. An extraordinary symbol of our society through the objects and forms it can take will be joined by the use of manipulation techniques, from hand to hand (partners acrobatics) and clowning. In a world that is a child of the consumable consumer revolution, where need has become essential and has replaced the reason for the absurd, it is natural to defend oneself through the most trivial and simple behaviors such as the return to naivety, fantasy and to being a child … after all, it does not take much to be happy.
