+ERBA: A Forest in the City

April 19 @ 6:00 pm


+ERBA: A Forest in the City, a special Aspen edition commissioned by the Wheeler Opera House, is an interactive environmental piece that Compagnia TPO has adapted to our valley’s character, monuments, and ecosystem. Their pioneering, multi-disciplinary performances meld music, dance, art, sculpture, digital media, lighting, and sound into a one-of-kind, immersive experience.

The interactive nature of this performance is most appropriate for children ages 4-10, as the audience will be seated on the stage with the performers.

Last May, the company studied the Roaring Fork Valley’s landscapes then performed a movement workshop mimicking the cycle of butterflies at the Riverview School in Glenwood Springs. Their pioneering, multi-disciplinary performances meld music, dance, art, sculpture, digital media, lighting, and sound into a one-of-kind, interactive experience.

Based in Prato, Italy, Compagnia TPO uses interactive, digital scenery to enhance theatrical dance performances that engage young audiences. Using their bodies to “paint” and “play music” with the ever-changing visuals onstage, the performers gently invite children in the audience to join them in their creative movement. Images and sounds interface with the bodies onstage, transforming live gestures and virtual landscapes into a charming interactive gallery. The company’s work has received awards for innovation and artistry in China, Poland, Italy, the United States and Spain.
