Accademia Teatro Dimitri (Svizzera) & Wild Donkeys (Olivia Corsini e Serge Nicolai)

➣ Platform international projects

With the show “Nothing is Lost” Serge Nicolaï and Olivia Corsini aim to orchestrate a collective creation. The show premiered in June 2018 at the Teatro Dimitri Academy and was created with a group of young international artists from Belgium, Switzerland, France, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Brazil and China. A group of girls and boys imprisoned in a “huis-clos”, they reflect, clash, oscillate between despondency and the need for revolt, questioning themselves on the role of art, on violence, on the struggle and on which weapons are at their disposal to offer their present to the public. A show that celebrates the body, the youngsters and their ability to imagine the future.
