In wildness is the preservation of the world.
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)





A journey of poetic initiation
From the Neutral Mask to the Red Nose
and return

From the mask of humanity
to the humanity of the mask
The Essence of Movement Theatre
in the journey of the actor-creator
through Nature, Masks, Archetypes,
Characters, Stories, Theatrical Territories
and the wisdom of the Body

A new pedagogic creation
for the ancient art of Theatre

Irreversible and irresistible
shapeshifting rigorous fun

After the end of the five-year cycle of the Kiklos School in Padua, in 2004, I have been working on a new structure of a long term training program, designed around the evolution of my pedagogic approach. The new vision is the HELIKOS Project, from a greek word meaning spiral.

A first cycle of the school has unfolded between 2009 and 2014, with an advanced training for teachers in Boulder, Colorado (Fall 2009), followed by four seasons of training programs in Florence, Italy (2010-2014).

I am now again in a phase of travels, research and writing, in order to further develope the Helikos vision, before its next manifestation in the form of a long term training program.

Helikos is the evolution of KIKLOS, the international school that operated in Padua, Italy, between 2000 and 2004.
