davDavide De Lillis  (IT\DE) comes from a faraway world. Following the sounds of pre-Roman rites, he arrives in Cori. He learns, from a group of knights, to tell and dance the lives of heroes who made of empathy and vulnerability their strength. He is flown by the impetuous winds of a hurricane to Palermo, where he works as an apprentice in the workshop of a Shaman and a Fisherman. He becomes a young artist and, aboard a paper boat, sails for adventures in unknown lands. He arrives in Berlin, where he starts a fellowship with a group of 77 stolen fish. Together, they create living paintings and board games, which are shown in several festivals and theaters in Europe. In the garden of a fools’ community he encounters a Bear. They join their strengths and become a clumsy beast with two heads. Beings of all kinds and from all over the world gather in schools, theaters and galleries to play with the strange creature. Floating on the sound of the wind, Davide arrives at the University of Lincoln (UK). There he learns from fawns, hamsters, sharks, panthers, veterinarians, lawyers and housewives. He receives, from the Queen, his Masters in Live Art. In the sky over Berlin, there is a Star with which he often communicates. Their conversations, made of strange sounds, dances and riddles, are exhibited in museums and festivals across Europe. Together with a Soul and a Unicorn, Davide cultivates the CALA festival: the garden of his dreams.
