Bergallo & Altri Animali
BY ALESSANDRO BERGALLO
@ VOL 10
ON OCT 31, 2014
A format to make science popular through entertainment. A variety. A monthly meeting which has taken place at La Claque (teatro della Tosse) in Genoa throughout the year 2014 and which has been dedicated to the understanding of the world of animals, with special guests and music. A comic show with a specific subject, that tells which are the dynamics of a group and which are the individual behaviours that make us similar -and feel different at the same time- to all the other living forms of this piece of earth. Insects, fishes, monkeys, reptiles, dinosaurs and fantasy animals like the "elephunk" (an elephant which loves the funky music): all the beasts are recalled to explain the complex dynamics that rule our relationships. On stage: musicians, biologists, scientists of the Robotic School in Genoa with drones and robots, dancers, actors, comedians, dragqueen and whatever contributes to tell the story of each episode through the show.
