Where sky and earth meet

THE LANGUAGE

Within the domain of dance, the body transforms into a manifesto of emotions, senses, and mysteries. Fluidity, rhythm, collective harmony, and individual personality steer the narrative within the realm of vertigo, where even the slightest gesture embodies the agility of both the physical form and acrobatic thought.

UNIQUENESS

Every location is a narrative of customs, of past and present, of tastes and necessities: space and context coalesce as co-directors of the performance, endowing each work with its distinctive uniqueness.

THE TECHNIQUE

Embraced by harnesses, the performers slide on ropes descending buildings and towers: their arms are free to draw rhythms in the air while their feet train their careful touch on a variety of walls.

On the stage for Vertical Waves Project, there are women who have turned their shared passion into a profession. Over the years, a strong complicity has developed among them, making the understanding between them all the more delightful.

We dance

We specialize in crafting vertical and aerial dance performances, infusing the art of poetic gestures into both intimate and grand site-specific shows.

Dance meets and inhabits vertical surfaces, changing the horizon;

vertical dance shares the emotion of height with the audience and leads to an apparent weightlessness.

Vertical Waves frees and expands the possible within the empty, faithful space.

Our performances enrich the venue, engaging in a meaningful dialogue with the unique characteristics of each event, be it architecture or nature.

Our creative works extend to both indoor and outdoor spaces, ranging from iconic structures such as buildings, walls, towers, bell towers, castles, and villas, to more unconventional settings like galleries, halls, and hangars. These vertical surfaces serve as dynamic stages, transforming open-air spaces into theaters that captivate and elevate the spectator’s experience.

we jump

Precise to the millimeter and anticipating the logic,
that point which reveals emotions before their names.

Where I feel the fear of the void and the fear of the jump,
where I feel the brake and the arrest.

Action after action originates the dance that gives itself,
the dance that relies
on the faithful void.

And away it goes, adrenaline, pure and lucid excitement,
monitored by conscience, maneuvered by technique,
signed by talent and never reproducible.
Rigor and freedom,
the performer walks here, between rigor and freedom.

Workshops

Vertical dance reimagines the wall as a floor, positioning the performer in a perpendicular alignment with the vertical surface.
