The show has the ambition to propose a version of ” biologically ” positive of a new virus – opposite to the parasitic and poisonous – made of choreographic language (and also musical and performative) that produces forms, skills, moral and aesthetic values​​. The ” south -virus ” dance generates toxins are not poisonous but bearers of health.

Overturning established patterns and clichés, Sudvirus wants to be positive , ready to show and represent a world / south away from the definitions that are used, trivially, to define certain aspects of southern Italy and often every southern hemisphere, and the performance driving toward a sense of belonging that is as strong as (and when) does not close the world, but rather accepts and embraces.
