Window of the City


“Better city, better live ” is the common thread of the Universal Exhibition of Shanghai 2010, and the starting-point for the dramaturgy of the show. In Window of the City we slip on a trip across the time and the different ways of constructing, from the prehistory up to the current times: mud, bamboo, brick … Our tour will lead us to visiting six world capitals that along his history have been lodged an EXPO. Getting to Shanghai, a child and a girl who had not ever seen them before, will show a human vision of the metropolis, and will teach us that the cities are not only urban developed complex, but they are done fundamentally by people, and that the aptitude to change them and to improve them only resides in the persons.
With an amazing visual impact, in this show take part 60 artists (singers, dancers and actors), with a spectacular scenery realized thanks to the advances of the Taiwanese, Chinese and British technology.

“Window of the City” is the only permanent show during the Exhibition of Shanghai.
