The Blue Dolls

The Shows…

Simply four hands, twenty fingers, a beam of light, a wide screen and an incredible performance unravels before your eyes. As if magic, they create the shadows of  lots of famous singers : Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Ricky Martin, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Joe Cocker, José Carreras, Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, Liza Minnelli and many more are evocated.

But also many important actors like as Charlie Chaplin, Humphrey Bogart, John Wayne, Clark Gable or the actually Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Bond and  Roberto Benigni.

Famous and important politicians like as Fidel Castro, Barack Obama, J.F. Kennedy, Nicolas Sarkozy, Vladimir Putin, Mikhail Gorbaciov, Queen Elizabeth II, the Pope and many more..they will appear in front of you producing funny and unexpected situations.

Carlo and Simona, thanks to their skilful hands, have revamped this ancient art and perform it with a modern and fascinating touch, shaping out incredible figures of human faces. Their manual dexterity is equivalent to that of a virtuoso musician who has a total dedication to the instrument he plays. With their hands, they study chords, new positions, and harmonious silhouettes and for this reason they are called “Musicians of Light”. The lasting impression one gets from watching their show is of having seen light being “played” in a most magical fashion.

On the international stage today Carlo and Simona are considered the most prominent and extraordinary interpreters of this ancient art, which they have completely renewed and reintroduced in a modern way. Thanks to the unique advanced technology they use, they are able to project enormous images created with their hands onto building facades as well as cinema screens large enough for thousands of people to enjoy them
