Only men. Innocence lightness. Youth strength. No past. So much life to live. It's a story ready to be written.

Bold, unbiased, they move on the stage: they have no fear of the world because they don't know it yet. But they know they have all sources to face their own challenge.


Laccioland is a new experiment of analysis and creative development of urban dance. The starting point is the technical pureness of hip-hop dance, but the destination has changed: we look for and find a new language shaped on Laccio’s material experience. Laccioland is a new message that takes place in the trial of urban techniques and in its colors and movement contamination. The company is auto-produced and is composed of several young people: Laccio, Shake and some Modulo Factory students. Through the Academy these young people meet and learn this new language made up of technique, dance street, destruction and creation. Laccioland Company starts off with the show CRE/AZIONE in Catania at Scenario Pubblico on the 5th and 6th January 2013.
