(VELINO) Roma, 15 Jul - Italian dance stars will be in Sao Paulo during the upcoming Olympic Games. "Kataklo'", Italy's best-known physical theatre company, will return to Brazil for the fifth time for the 31st Olympic Games in Rio with "Play", a performance on program at the Teatro Se'rgio Cardoso next 27 and 28 July. The visionary style of choreographer Giulia Staccioli, who founded the company in 1995, is the key of the incredibly spectacular iconic show that is the symbol of Kataklo''s artistic history. Specifically developed to represent Italy in 2008 for the Beijing Culture Olympics at the request of the Chinese Ministry of Culture and under the high patronage of the Italian Foreign Ministry, Cultural Institute and Embassy, "Play" was already taken on a prestigious tour of Brazil in 2010, being staged in 12 of the Country's most famous theatres, including the Teatro Alfa in Sao Paulo and the Teatro Municipal in Rio de Janeiro. The performances were all sold-out, recording historic box offices and consolidating the quality and fame of the Kataklo' Company in South America. vel
