Naturalis Labor Company was born in 1988. The organizational and operational sites are in Vicenza (Italy). Naturalis Labor carries out continuous work research on contemporary dance, tango and on performing arts. The Company creates unique shows and events thanks to collaborations with national and European realities. Its shows have been produced and debuted in theatres, festivals and exhibitions in Italy and abroad (France, Scotland, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Romania, Turkey, Greece).

The Company is recognized and supported by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, Veneto Region, Vicenza’s Province, Municipality of Vicenza and Arco Danza. It promotes exhibitions and festivals like Visioni di Danza, Forti in Scena and Danza a Comacchio.

A rite between the sacred and the profane telling a lost humanity. Intimate, primordial, fascinating show, it captures the audience with its immediacy strength. It makes people think on evolution, leading on the journey of the mystery of the ritual. By stopping some images references to Baroque painting or to certain forms of Neolithic sculpture can be glimpsed.
