LA DONNA DAL VESTITO ROSSO / LA FEMME EN HABIT ROUGE
by Bruna Bonanno
direction Matthieu Pastore
with Ksenija Martinovic
production Scena Nuda
Above the tree, the realm of a sorceress.
Inside the realm, the illusionist, the dancing acrobat, the elephant tamer, the tightrope walker without a rope, the fortune teller, the contortionist, the knife thrower, the fire mistress, a hen who thinks she is Joan of Arc.
Through an extravagant alternation of circus acts and the analysis of recurring female archetypes in western fairy tales, the dramaturgy is articulated around the creative and destructive potential of the imagination. Characters with fantastic tones come to life in the body of an actress-magician, who mixes short stories of seduction, power, and the obsessive search for approval. It tells of the lightness that is embellished in order to bewitch, of the fantasy that is prostituted in order to embellish, and of the laughter that is provoked in order to conceal and subjugate.
In order to break and disentangle itself from the pre-established roles reserved by society for femininity and the feminine, La femme en habite rouge | La donna dal vestito rosso is a provocation to move reality with the filter and perspective of the imagination: to extend the visible beyond the real in an attempt to invent and aspire to new, fervid, anarchic identities.
