The evening-version of the program
Stage TV is a multimedia stage show; a spectacular mixture of juggling,
acrobatic skills, monocycling, artistic skills and accurate video
animation. Interactive sequences join the supreme artistic turns
and create a linking between the real action on stage and the virtual
world of the televisions.
Stage TV is a live show with interference on vision: A program,
where the presenter turns into the juggler's ball and where TV's
are abused as acrobatic partners. The action on stage is once dictated
by the artists and then the screens dominate the course of the show.
This one time the audience doesn't need to choose whether to go
to the theatre or rather watch TV: Stage TV provides them with both!
... and they experience a fascinating show, where reality and the
virtual world play together in a new and virtuoso manner.
The gala show
Stage TV shows the highlights of the evening program in a shortened
gala show. It's a kind of modular assembly with flexible duration.
There are versions from 10 to 40 minutes.
Romano Carrara is an establishing member of the former group LivingArt
and had been on tour all over Europe for 7 years. He shows visually
very effective choreographies for juggling and provides a technical
very demanding and speedy artistic program. He acquired his actual
professionalism in over 800 shows.
The Duo Scacciapensieri, Cornelia Clivio and Lorenz Matter, has
been on tour around the planet since 1994 and has been awarded several
different prizes (e.g. at the monocycle World Championships in Minneapolis).
Both are persuading with an acrobatic performance full of mysticism
and a spectacular balance act with both on one monocycle.
