In 2003 they were involved in a road accident, the serious consequences of which prevented Antonella from dancing for a long time. Since then they have always been together. APOTROPIA is the result of their symbiosis, the receptacle of their experimentation based on interconnections between performing arts and all forms of audiovisual expressions. They look after every aspect of their own artistic production, mainly using materials such as light, sound, motion, bodies, time. Their works are influenced by philosophical, anthropological and scientific themes with a focus on symbols, myths and cultures of mankind.
