Il Giardino, takes inspiration, in part, from post Renaissance Italian garden design and incorporates a fascination with grotesque statuary, created within a paper and card grotto in the Palazzo Pesaro Papafava.  Using grotesque masks and color shadow play, live and pre-recorded sound, and the display of highly unusual objects - such as a real 2000 year old Roman artifact - the performance is deeply immersive.  A secret garden of luminous transformation and wonder materialises and disappears again, back into the shadows of the ancient palazzo.
