“Animali da palco”
by and with Alex De Santis

Who are the stage animals?
What drives a man to get involved in front of others?
But above all why do the others, much more wisely, sit in an armchair?

Discovering the animal instinct that makes us assist, excite, exhibit and be protagonists on a stage as in life.

The show by Alex De Santis, a comedian who calls himself “first generation Milanese” there will be time travel, from homo sapiens to the whole homo smartphone, passing through music, poetry, world languages ​​and Italian dialects. There is no shortage of incursions by his characters, first of all the master Cristian Catenato, already seen among the protagonists of Colorado.

The show follows a reference canvas that also foresees the possible presence of a different special Guest in each performance, or an actor / comedian who actively participates in the realization of some passages of the story. The performances will therefore, in part, always be different since there will be room for improvisation and interaction with the public that “will never be left alone”.
