This performance sees the young audience as well as the dancers from Compania TPO become part of a city where trees grow on houses, where grass grows and animals live everywhere, surrounded by colour. At the beginning of the show, «+Erba» is nothing but two enormous sheets on the stage. The two dancers add the pictures to these surfaces, and the movements of their bodies are transformed into in a dynamic environment. Suddenly within the city, a big factory appears which grows and grows, driving away the insects, birds and people and chasing the greenery. This is when the audience gets involved…

«+Erba» is an interactive performance and installation which brings to life new forms of expression which overcome language and cultural barriers. With the use of digital designs, the stage is transformed into a dynamic combination of images, sounds and bodies – in short, into an imaginary city of the future.
