The show is a multidisciplinary work that draws from dance and drama going through the archetypes and contents of the fairy tale Bluebeard, to which it is inspired, becoming a look at the present.
“You can only open the doors of the rooms allowed” says Bluebeard, but the bride refuses, opens the secret doors and discovers the bodies of the previous marionettes-brides, who slip into a story suspended between fairy tale and reality, where the element of transgression takes the value of redemption. The bride aspires to change the plot of her ‘destiny’ and embodying the desire of not allowing herself to be homologated by violence, she crosses the vast abyss of power.
Show realized as part of Cantiere Project 2020. It speaks of liberation and love in the discovery of oneself
beyond gender stereotypes, through the use of dance, sound and ancient puppets.
