BIANCO SU BIANCO
“We are creating a new show that plays – in keeping with our very own approach to storytelling– on the balance between a sweet and nostalgic form of absurd. Regardless of the simplicity and bareness of the theatrical apparatus, ours is a surrealist universe, somehow fiercely serene, a self-reflecting form of theatre, where actors use the proscenium to engage in a dialogue with the audience, where illusion and tricks are always disclosed at the end, where we laugh and are moved, where the clowns do not play the fools, but rather embody the frailness of losing heroes. ”
Daniele Finzi Pasca
Bianco su Bianco is a theatrical clowning production performed by two actors with a circus background. The story follows two characters, an actress and the stage technician who clumsily supports the former and helps her in creating images that will carry the audience into a surreal universe.
These two clowns reach out to the audience and lead them into the realm of memory, with remarkable finesse and precision. In a dialogue with their surroundings, the artists create a world where light breathes to magnify emotions and flesh out a series of scenes based in these candid yet surprising universes and geometries.
In this production, the Company’s aesthetics meet a height of simplicity, a simplicity that is still adorned with plentiful surprises.
