"Sogni" (Dreams) is a fast-paced and funny work about teenagers and for teenagers, with justice as its main theme. Using dance, words, video, sound and 2D/3D animation, “Sogni” relates the restless dreams of a boy during a stormy night, dreams that are inhabited by a terrible sister, an eccentric and strange mother, a provocative girl and a tramp called Socrates. Nothing is known about how the characters are in reality, it’s only possible to see them through the dream: excessive, distorted, funny and sometimes dreary.
As the performance touches the most relevant themes for teenagers (injustice, love, sex, relationship with relatives, brothers and sisters, existential questions), it achieves through the use of different media a complex and rich plot. "Sogni" offers both the younger and older members of the audience ironic points of reflection about relationships and people in everyday life.

Francesca Pedroni – Danza&Danza – Gennaio/febbraio 2004

“(...) Valentina Buldrini was really good, but no less was Stefano Questorio in the role of the boy (“ragazzino”) and all the others, including the same Castello. A good rhythm is created by the 2D and 3D animations and the alternation of acting and dance. An agile performance, which reports with spirit some of the real problems of teenagers connected to relationships.

Anna Anselmi - Libertà - 23 dicembre 2003

“(...) Great acclaim at the “Filo” for the theatre-dance show by Roberto Castello (…). Sogni, (…) the aim of which is to communicate with young people issues concerning ethics and justice as it refers to the great thinkers of the past. (…) Here and there young dancers break out, dragging their characters around the dances, conveying through their body action their existential questions. Each scene changes quickly, as if controlled by the frenetic “zapping” of a remote control.

Valeria Ottolenghi - Gazzetta di Parma – 1 dicembre 2003

“(...) A difficult but successful experiment, with a severe, clear, ironic performance that remains faithful to the poetic vision of the artist creator in its attention to a young audience…(…) , great praise for a work of great value, that encourages young people to better understand themselves, the theatre and the theatre-dance…”
