“We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”
A Tale, the Tempest, transformed into a series of poetic images, and an interplay of actions that expand into a huge painting by Chagal.
The late 19th century Russian painter was of fundamental help in the creation of our Tempest; belonging to the pictorial movement of Oniric Fauvism with the accent of Strong Colors of Expressionist painting, Chagal, is well suited to our contemporary puppetry.
The supernatural images develop and follow each other in the show, to create a series of poetic and dreamlike actions / visions.
We followed the text by W. Shakespeare, solely as a general outline, giving a little more space to images and music.
As in Chagal’s paintings, we see men and women gliding “upside down”, spaces where gravity and proportions do not seem to exist, even in our puppet theater, the characters do not have a horizon, a physical plane on which to move.
