If the company has to disassemble the show after the latest performance, the performance has to begin no later than 9 o’clock.

  Audience and duration of the show  

The audience will sit on the stage, on chairs or pillows (maximum 50 people). The show is usually performed twice, and it can be attended by 100 people per day.

The show is not recommended for claustrophobics, nor for anyone who feels uncomfortable in a state of complete and lasting darkness.

The show lasts 1 hour. The second performance usually begins half an hour after the end of the first one.


Every shot or video recording of the show must be discussed with the company first, and it has to be implemented the day of the first performance; photographs will not be allowed neither for newspapers nor for archives: it will only be possible to use the photographs provided by the company, the photographer Enrico Fedrigoli must be mentioned. No live broadcast is allowed during the performance without the company’s permission.
