From Liberi Di... Physical Theatre

Something aerial. Something funny. Something beautiful. A troupe of seven skilled acrobats fuses circus, dance, physical theater and clowning into a singular, captivating performance that appears comically effortless. From reading a book to playing a game of poker, these inventive performers create silly, surreal scenes out of everyday ordinary acts. This show has SOMETHING for everyone!

Getting to Know Liberi Di… Physical Theatre

Based in Milan and founded in 2007, Liberi Di... began as a dance collaboration between four circus gymnasts: Davide Agostini, Stefano Pribaz, Valentina Marino and Giulia Piolanti. Since then, they've grown their ensemble to seven, joining forces with jugglers, acrobats and actors to playfully weave their talents into athletic, theatrical routines. Liberi Di... is a rising star in European physical theater, and we're proud to welcome them as the first Italian circus on the New Vic stage. Benvenuti!

Accolades and Highlights:

  • The company's four founders performed in the acrobatic dance piece "Olympic Spirit" during the Opening Ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino.
  • Performed at Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015 to rave reviews

Milan, Italy
...Milan, Italy


Milan is home to Teatro alla Scala, Europe's largest opera house. It can seat 2,800 people at a time—over five times as many as the New Vic can!

Your Trip to Our Theaters


Just steps from the Times Square-42nd Street subway stops, The New Victory is a 499-seat, historic, jewel box theater restored to its original glory. The majority of our shows are presented here, in the oldest operating theater in New York City. Down in the lobby you'll find stroller parking, free lockers to store your stuff, healthy snacks and New Vic merch to take home. View a seating chart for this venue, or take a 360° virtual tour!


Located inside the New 42nd Street Studios building, The Duke on 42nd Street is home to New Victory programming that requires a more intimate space. Seating varies per production.


Located just down the block from The New Victory Theater, the New 42nd Street Studios host New Vic shows geared towards our youngest audience members. The space allows for a variety of seating configurations, including options for floor seating, making it easy to move around and step out of the theater area if you and yours need to do so. Stroller parking and changing tables are available.
