One side of the wall is hard, compact, and scratch-resistant: this is the wall of the masses. The other side, however, contains the many anonymous lives who populate the history. This is the wall of contrary motions: the wall excludes, but at the same time protects; the wall defends borders but at the same time repels foreigners.

The show moves on three separate pictures, each linked to the other by a repeating track showing how an apparently identical situation can change only by changing a point of view. "never believe that you are anything other than what it might seem to others, that what you were or could have been was nothing more than what you have been who would have seemed to be ..." or vice versa.


Meltin_Pot hh dance company is a project that was born in 2005 from an idea of Lisa Brazil in Florence with the collaboration of the International Opus Ballet Dance Center directed by Rosanna Brocanello and Daniel Tinazzi.

The collective also participates in various international events including Fabbrica Europa Festival (Stazione Leopolda - Firenze).  The name comes from the real "Melting Pot" of cultures that make up the members of the group, which, even over time, despite having changed the elements has always brought together different countries, from the various areas of Italy itself, to Europe, Asia and Africa.
