DRIVE IN, created in Ticino, has been presented at the Autosilo Piazza del Sole, 3 level parking garage under the main square of Bellinzona, and programmed within the frame of the Festival Territori during July 2016.
The audience was invited to attend in their own car and tune in to a radio frequency about an hour before the show.
Once in site, they would be organised into tow semi-circle parking disposition: a dance performance would take place and each car would enjoy music and a radioplay to the action: sometimes addressing the action entirely, and sometimes belonging to a completely detached layer of information. Thus, the performance would generate a vacuum to be filled with the audience's imagination, as well as loose one's self into the element of the radio performance.

Drive in is also the closure of Carnal Creative Universe, a work of over 5 years that comprehends the labour of over thirty artists and supported largely by the local community.
Carnal Creative Universe has delivered the following productions:
Carnal: Poetry, Dance, Theatre, Music, Calligraphy. Snout Mask: Leather Masks for the choreographic construction of characters. Miss Understanding: Poetry, Dance, Music. Miss Understanding WKND: Poetry, Dance, Music, Video and Installation. CCU: Digital Publishing. Il Sogno: Short Film. Poetic narrative. A fiction. Room 306: Film & Music Performance. Open Land: Mid-length Film. Experimental narrative through dance and music. Film Noir. Drive In: Radiotheatre and Dance.
Carnal Creative Universe has also delivered a neuralgic compositum of information titled Ubi. Sit. Loci. from which there comes about nodal elements of narrative information and dramatic movement. It is now being compressed into a Virtual Reality project.
At the center of Carnal Creative Universe there is always a crime happening. The use of void and a specular narration allows the audience to be sucked into the intimacy of the experience.
