The group creates a tableau, be it itinerant or situated 'in one place'. In addition to this, according to the event and setting, they sometimes perform short danced scenes or interactive interludes with the audience of guests.
Based on the iconography of classical figures in fine art, in both 2 and 3 dimensions, this representation goes beyond stillness, and is the fruit of research into "silence"… which is surprisingly interactive.
The stylisation of the characters and their relative historic periods radiate light to all environments: villa, courtyard, garden or ballroom. An evocative performance, theatrically breathtaking in its understated charm.
