Complicato, sexy e sfacciatamente immaginativo, Tangram ridisegna i confini tra danza, nuovo circo e teatro fisico. Creato e presentato dalla nota danzatrice Cristiana Casadio e dall'artista circense di livello mondiale Stefan Sing, lo spettacolo descrive in modo accattivante la lotta dell'uomo tra attrazione e repulsione. Laddove le scarpette da punta restavano un tempo relegate alla sbarra e le palline da giocoleria erano confinate nel tendone da circo, ora entrambe fanno follie sullo stesso palcoscenico. I due artisti portano nuova vita nelle loro rispettive forme d'arte, unendosi per raccontare una storia d'amore, sdegno, e soprattutto potere. Sia che lei penda dalle dita del suo partner come una marionetta o che lui si protegga dietro una barriera di palline che volano come missili, la coppia incarna allo stesso tempo passione e furia. Tangram chiede cosa vuol dire arrendersi all'amore e ci chiede chi ne ha il controllo.
