STORMO ® is a long-standing project based on the development of harmony within groups of people. Its core is an open workshop, during which the conditions created let collective intelligence emerge. In a short time participants find themselves spontaneously applying the same movement rules used by flocks of birds to migrate, by preys to survive and by large groups to organize. This process triggers a surprising physical joy in the participants and, as a consequence, wonder and involvement in the observers.

For Altofest Malta we decided to create a special session, dedicated to football.

The project tangibly develops active listening through nonverbal communication: a simple relationship mode, physical, immediate, that allows to look beyond the boundaries associated to roles, social classes, culture, language and nationality. STORMO ®  reveals resources buried in the memory of the body, allowing not only the individuals to discover themselves as part of a group, but also the group to perceive itself as a single self-regulated entity. we realized dozens of sessions in different countries.


Effetto Larsen, born as a theatre company, has always focused on human relationships; over the years we have developed an extremely original research path, widening our horizons from the traditional theatre perspective and investigating, through performing arts, the human being and its relationships, founding elements of everyone’s lives. Our working methods, our point of view and our activities are constantly evolving. Free from any kind of constraints, we like to open up to other disciplines, places, people, relentlessly confronting the reality around us. All of our projects give participants an active role, as part of the creative process itself or as audience. During all our activities, from performances to training, we draw the lesson from our theatrical experience: self and others’ awareness educates people on discovering a precious inner space, from which higher quality relationships can develop.
