"This show is shaped like a woman's braid; the stories of three couples flow and bind to each other, each a different dominant. The starting point are three short stories by Ivan Bunin, Nobel Prize for Literature in 1933.
Our life is not just words, and it continues to flow even when the attention is not on us, even when we have nothing to say. The main actions of life (like eating, undressing or playing) are always the same, but how many different nuances can they hide! In the contemporaneity of these couples, each of the protagonists lives their own short and intense life, like that of moths, restless souls in the constant search for something.
In the West the work of this author is still not well known, a writer endowed with an overflowing sensuality that takes life to the front, enjoys in an almost bulimic way the essence of the world, its colors, sounds and smells. Bunin's characters go beyond good and evil, the only reality that intervenes on human destiny is the cosmic nature, present everywhere with its suns, its stars, its darkness, unavoidable and fatal. The Buninian universe is crossed by magical and mystical currents, crossed by the thrill of awe and dismay. Bunin observes love, sadness, small joys and great suffering with his broad thought. What is wide thought? A tuning fork of the soul, of perception: That moment in which you no longer reason, but in which you imagine. Imagine other dimensions, you become an image out of time yourself. The thought "wide" is to abandon oneself to images, to that Light Breath, to the dreams and fantasies that light up within us. And then an extraordinary alchemy happens: we find ourselves in front of a Dark Avenue, in front of a great mystery ".
Stories lengthen our lives. Last night you nicely stretched mine. I sat down and let myself be enchanted by the beauty, the irony, the smell of fried food, a look, anxiety, loneliness, words, hands, a misplaced hope, a chance encounter, a a cowardly soap bubble, from a moth attracted by light, from the scent of sun cream on bare skin, from the desire to be something else, from a hen with a big heart, from angels, from "A Light Breath"
Being a woman is complicated, complex, rich in a thousand nuances and you, thanks to a wonderful text by Ivan Bunin, have been able to tell what goes beyond appearing ... and it is not that what appears to be little!
Meet, talk, understand each other ... alchemies that are difficult to achieve. And when it really happens, you could taste that moment and have the courage to say ... "Let's stop here! Nothing better can happen!"
But this show will happen because having released this breath into the air ... now flying where it wants
Thank you for the work, the heart, the passion with which you gave birth to a new golden child of the CTI. It's nice to see such beautiful artistic growths in people I love very much!
