You, me & i – URBAN Conceptz Theatre

 

You, me & i  is a silent piece of theatre that mixes innovative storytelling, stunning audiovisual technology, mask work and explosive movement theatre.
Using a set of headphones, You, me and i takes each audience member on a personal journey through a large-scale steel structure, inviting them to trace the parallels of three potent stories exploring life as a young person in today’s fast-paced and judgemental world.

I grew up in a small town of the french part, and then I moved to the italian part for my Bachelor of Arts in Physical Theatre, at the «Accademia Teatro Dimitri».
