Ai Migranti is a contemporary circus & dance show on migrations by Collettivo 320Chili.

With this performance, the company won the “Premio Equilibrio 2010”, the award for contemporary dance emerging talent in Italy.

The international jury‚ led by the choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and composed of Carole Fierz: Paris Quartier d’ete‚ (Paris); Brigitte Fürle: Berliner Festspiele‚ (Berlin); Gil Mendo: Culturgest (Lisbon);
 Benoît Swan: Pouffer Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet (USA)‚
 Suzanne Walker: Sadler’s Wells‚ (London)‚
 chose the company’s work for the following reasons:

«Ai Migranti by 320Chili presents an example of a poetic and emotionally effective collective work. The artists/performers have been able to combine their different areas of training in a choral harmony‚ which‚ among other things‚ takes its inspiration from a major phenomenon of our age – migration – that affects us all. The jury has appreciated their ability to create evocative pictorial images‚ a result obtained using few resources and challenging the usual language of their disciplines. The jury encourages 320Chili to maintain and develop this approach.»
