Drama Sound City is a bridge between performance art and electro music, starting from the suggestions gathered in the city suburbs.
The performance leads the spectator through visionary scenes, characterized by lights, sounds and actions that compose and decompose the geometries of the city suburbs as in a time lapse, capturing its rapid transformations and its more solitary, nocturnal, enigmatic moods.
Defining an inhabitable space to be opened and shared in an unexpected change of depth. Space expands, offering a sidereal vision in which distances and sizes lose their meanings and blur sensory perceptions.
Sound footprints immersed in urban acoustic and contemporary contexts, carved inside a flux of sound generators, creating a fascinating mosaic of imaginative sound environments.

ABOUT THE COMPANY
The artistic core of Stalker Teatro have worked together since setting up the ‘Political Collective’ at Turin Academy of Fine Arts in 1975, the heyday of Italy’s post-68 cultural and political uproar. This has left an enduring mark on the company’s work which is characterised by a strong commitment to artistic experimentation within socially sensitive or challenging situations.
Using a distinctive style developed from site-specific events, performance art and participatory theatre, Stalker Teatro have performed throughout all major locations and festivals in Europe and beyond.
