IT Suite-Hope starts from a reflection on the issue of hope and of its being topical within the contemporary world. Since the very beginning, by virtue of a few questions, it implicates every single audience member, casting him/her into a theoretical confrontation with his/her own beliefs and positions. The exploration begins with an exodus, a departure towards a different place. The performers' bodies populate the world and hence the stage, consume history and leave a void behind. So, paper men re-populate it, blown by wind to make an outworn landscape green again. Just as if they were in a large ballroom, they also try to find a balance, without knowing until when they will be able to stand. In the light of a world in movement, the perspective of ongoing evolution might offer any individual the chance to recreate him/herself, to change, to improve, or, in the end, to fall.
