           COSMESI
is an experimental group founded in 2001 by Eva Geatti and Nicola Toffolini with the desire to get into Theatre research as much as possible. Right from the start it has trascended simply putting on shows in favour of investigating the stage as device, the theatre as a free place for involvements of the visual immagination. The company's baseline is to build up autonomous architectures (abstract or otherwise) that contain the body, "acting conditioning cells". At present Cosmesi tends to work without preconceptions, once more considering theatre space as a battlefield, without limits and without heavy artillery.
