Danza in Rete OFF


Collettivo Elevator Bunker
Nazional premiere and coproduction


Saturday 22 April, 19:00Teatro Spazio Bixio

Delivery investigates the theme of happiness understood as the state of mind of those who feel their desires are satisfied. A game without pretense and without saving where the performers transform their weaknesses into strengths. A show about the need to be unconditionally happy, without fear of being judged or excluded.

Elevator Bunker was born in 2008 in the province of Verona from an idea by Matteo Maffesanti and Davide Pachera as an active response to the desire for artistic research in the field of intellectual disability. The many years of experience gained by both in the social sector leads them to activate a path which, through the performing arts and body language, can become an opportunity for growth and integration. The fundamental objective of the project is to create an open and accessible environment in which to express one's creativity, considering individual characteristics not as a limit but as an important resource in artistic creation. Over the years, the association has created performances, numerous workshops in day centres, schools and communities, participatory video projects, and training courses for educators and third sector personnel. In 2009, in collaboration with the University of Verona, he made Cinquanta di oggi, a short film that deals with the theme of sexuality in the presence of intellectual disabilities, a project produced by the Veneto Region and distributed by Aracne Editore. Since 2013, thanks to the support of Operaestate Festival, he has created the performances Shoe and Universal Bestiary, presented in numerous festivals and national contexts. Since 2017, the collective has been an active part in the international social inclusion projects DanceINclusive and Crisco, promoted by the CSC of Bassano del Grappa, and is involved in the CAD - Digital Artistic Communities project, supported by the Veneto Region, in collaboration with the Ca' Foscari University Foundation. In 2023 it is the company selected for the Boarding Pass Plus project.
