MADE IN ILVA is a masterpiece of physical theatre, exploring the impact of the biggest steelworks of Europe on the environment and surrounding population.
The performance is a perfect combination of extreme physical actions, sounds that become obsessive rhythms, original music, vocals and video projections. An emotional and poetic exploration of the alienation and oppression of a human body reduced to an artificial machine.
“A performance of rare perfection”
Gazzette of Parma ★★★★★

After successful, sold-out runs in New York and all across India Radhika Vaz is ready with her second one-woman comedy show‘Older. Angrier. Hairier.’
This time around the irreverent, hilariously funny comedian focuses her wit on the universal themes of children, ageing, and domestic duty. While tackling complicated issues isn’t new territory for Vaz, with OAH she has established herself as a socially relevant commentator unapologetically mocking conventional wisdom.
With an appeal that crosses both age and gender lines, Vaz leaves the audience helpless with laughter in a high-octane performance that shows us all how women are really very funny.
“Vaz is breaking gender barriers.” – The Daily Beast, NY.
“The Indian Wanda Sykes.” – The Huffington Post, NY.
The first novel of R. K. Narayan to gain international fame was Swami and Friends, the story of a
young lad named Swami and his escapades with his two close friends, Rajam and Mani. More
than anything else, it is a story of friendship and camaraderie. Set in late pre-independence
India, the story takes us through the world of charming, boyish innocence of Swami in
Malgudi. With remarkable characterisation and a wonderful sense of humour, Narayan’s
Swami and Friends is a delight for the old and the young.
