“We don't need uplifting stories, especially in the times we live in...

We must not lose the fire of the encounter with Jesus.    For this reason, let's look at the Master, follow Him on His journey without losing sight of Him

At the threshold of 2023, the Pope issued a challenge to artists to engage in telling the universal value of humanity and the extraordinarily contemporary message of Christ in this fluid and fragmented time, amidst genetic trends and defunct ideologies. The internationally renowned Italian company based in Rome, Nogravity, accepted this challenge and created a new charity performance centered on the theme of the Passion of Christ.

This performance revisits the theme of the Sacred Mystical Representation that Western culture has portrayed in theater, churches, and squares across Europe for centuries. With secularization, the cathartic use of art in support of citizens' spirituality has waned. Since the Middle Ages, citizens, proud of their belonging to the community, have felt entitled to express their religious sentiments through art, and artists have consistently supported this mystical sentiment. We are reviving this tradition, of which the highest and most refined genre gave rise to the Renaissance's Theater of Wonders. Nogravity, through a contemporary lens, reimagines the Theater of Wonders, creating a one-of-a-kind performance in the vein of its great international successes like 'Aria' and 'The Feast of Paradise
