what‘s on
When the golden dragon rises, and the knights awaken from their sleep, we return to the depth of our hearts, listening to the most human rhythm of all rhythms: our heartbeat. No two beats are the same, as no two humans are.

Storytelling is one of the oldest traits of humanity, and it will prevail, outliving all AI, chatGPT and metaverses.

I am pursuing the ultimate art of storytelling in music theater — inspired by magic realism and that which connects us all: pure love.
