ErosAntEros is an artistic research path, which uses the theatrical form to deal with a multitude of expressive languages, equally bearers of meaning, in a creative process free from definitions and genre distinctions which manipulates sources of various nature, such as philosophy, politics, history, current affairs, science, art and literature.
The company was born from the union of Davide Sacco and Agata Tomsic.
In the summer of 2009, Davide Sacco, “Teatro delle Albe” music designer (Leben, Rosvita, Stranieri, L’Avaro) and “Fanny & Alexander” performer (Kansas, South, Kansas Museum), began to work on the first phase of asprakounelia (Treno Fantasma)‘s creation. His first meeting with Agata Tomsic, who had a background of University studies in Performing Arts and workshop experiences with several avant-garde groups of the Italian contemporary theatre, took place in January 2010 in a “cardboard city”, thanks to a workshop with Motus, in Ravenna.
After the debut of the show (May 2010), the pair began a research project on the nymph figure, in connection with man and his relation with images. This path gave life to a new creation, Nympha, mane! (January 2012), which generated at the same time other new forms. Born this way was the Contagi mnestici, (Mnestic contagions), a plot of meetings whose aim is to contaminate the public through nymphal imaginaries, and TraScendere – Concerto sintetico per figure espressive (TranScend – Synthetic concert for expressive figures, July 2011), a performance made to discover the work with sensors from a technical and a formal point of view, which is a concept present since the conception of the project for Nympha, mane!.
Nympha, mane! (the performance) was finalist at the award Tuttoteatro.com Dante Cappelletti 2011
Nympha, mane!‘s text won the Competition of Art and Culture “Istria Nobilissima” 2012
Nympha, mane!‘s text was finalist in the 30th edition of the Premio Firenze (Florence Award) 2012
