Is a lie worth less than the truth? Profumo d’acacia is an illusion; it is magic in a place and time that has very little magic. Giovanni Leonarduzzi draws on his research into movement (which is rooted in breakdance and contaminated with contemporary dance) and transforms it into a wider project that encompasses both music and words, with the aim of combining tradition and experimentation. The result is a popular show, where “popular” means that it belongs to the culture of the people. A long-forgotten fairy tale from the past. A wonderful lie.
