Originating in the underground scene, the company Materia Prima was born from the merger of the Italian performer Domiziano Cristopharo and Jose Luis Lemos, challenging perceptions and gaining an expanding number of dedicated followers. The company traces its roots – and motivations – back to the Ankoku-Butoh movement active in Japan in the 1950s, mixing them with contemporary and experimental theatre, resulting in performances like In-Perfezione with strong psychological/visual appeal: the performers' naked bodies, painted and covered with gold and mud, do not merely describe a state or an idea, but create a veritable chain of metamorphosis.
