The performing arts group DOO – Divano Occidentale Orientale was born in January 2010 by Giuseppe L. Bonifati. DOO artistic project started from the South (Italy) and the South of the World (Costa Rica), and especially from a will to create and produce contemporary art through a deep research, offering it to youth and adults. DOO- it’s a wide-ranging project, a continuous journey of contamination across geographical borders. Since the beginning our main concern is one: how to translate on stage the unconscious and the unknown.
In 7 years of existence the group has produced a line of diverse works: Ammaliata (2009), Cala ‘a Saudage (2010), Pepè El Bastardo Impaziente e Innamorato (2011),
Maiden in Costa Rica (2012), ivetotellusomething, (2012) Qui-es-tu? Tu me tues; Maren og Jeg; The Judgement, Outdoor Sin (2014), Shame; Above the Skin (2015); Mayor in Residence (2016/2017); Kommandopost (2016); Declarations of Beauty (2017); The Last Blow (2017), among others. They have been hosted in theatres, museums, galleries & art festivals of international significance in Italy, Denmark, France, Costa Rica, Poland, BosniaHerzegovina, Hungary, Venezuela, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Serbia, Macedonia, Croatia, Iran, Brazil, Spain… see more
