RadSam Company is an artistic project born in April of 2018 among the Swiss mountains and the Lago Maggiore in Ticino. It has been co-founded by Salome Manz (German) and Robert Díaz Díaz (Colombian).
They decided to collaborate and start finding their own physical language in the artistic creation.Through a mix of circus, dance and theatre language, their researches go from physicality to a human cotidian encounter.The different possibilities among body-action and reality-fantasy, create the universe of their performances.

...And think twice before leaving.
Waiting at a train station -then-, an encounter. Something clicks and a moment stretches in time. Two beings come together flying in a suspended dream which changes their directions. Chemistry? Coincidence? Accident? Life is a moment. And a moment may last a little eternity.
Una stazione, l’attesa, un incontro. Qualcosa fa clic e un istante si allunga nel tempo. Due esseri si uniscono in volo, un sogno sospeso che riesce a cambiare il loro corso. Chimica? Coincidenza? Casualità? La vita è un momento. Un momento può essere una piccola eternità.
Push me out!
(Cyr wheel and Acro–dance duo)
They come from far away. Not even they know from where. They just appeared. Not being part of anything, but of the whole, nothing limits them. Now it’s different. The bed in which we are born determines our boundaries. But while we grow, we are able to choose how to change our destiny, modify it, expand it or restrict it.
Arrivano da lontano. Nemmeno loro sanno da dove. Compaiono e basta. Non essendo parte di nulla, ma dellintero, nulla li limita. Adesso è diverso. La natura del letto in cui si nasce determina i nostri confini. Ma durante la crescita abbiamo la possibilità di scegliere come cambiarne il destino, modificarli, espanderli o restringerli.
Camino al wüin
A meeting in the disagreement. Between possessing power and losing reason, there is a very easy line to cross. "Wüin" means "water" in the Guajira’s Colombian indigenous language. When playing with wüin, we play with our life. No rights matter, there is no more respect. A game of powers with a very high price in our day to day. Between dance-acrobatics and contemporary circus, the relations of domination and power that affect the clarity of essential decision-making are explored. Plastic or water?
Belonging to no one
Created and performed by: Robert Díaz Díaz
External eye: Matej Matejka.
Supported by Accademia Teatro Dimitri
Belonging to no one is inspired by the book of poems “Conversation in the dark” (Conversación a oscuras) written by the Colombian writer Horacio Benavides. On one hand, it is an echo of what a war leaves behind it and on the other hand, it is an echo of indifference to a war; when a war becomes quotidian and it frustrates dreams, but also, when indifference is supported by the media and allows you to continue dreaming even when surrounded by death. Even when you are dead. A scream of silence.
