What happens when the character from the performance “Dreams and Obstacles” whirls around and around, only to find herself in the new performance “Perchance to Dream”? That spin-off of the character leads to new images that question leaving one’s own country, the life in art, the possibility or impossibility of the choice, and the value of the dream.

Every day, on her way to her theatre, a young woman meets a man. Surrounded by his unpacked backpack and his instruments, a blanket  with exotic ornaments draped over his shoulders, he plays. They do not share their mother tongue, but they share different languages that transcend speech. She tells him, or imagines to tell him, the story of her life. He replies with his music. They try to find the sense of their life choices in a world where people are forced to abandon their countries in order to save themselves, in a world where sometimes, it is more important to follow the thread of Shakespearian dreaming.

About En Vol Theater:

Theatre En Vol,represents one of the most significant experiences of Italian street theatre. With its imaginative capsizing and engaging performances, in which the actors and the amazing theatrical machines are the mediators of dreamlike voyages and fantastic suggestions, the company has gained recognition all over Europe. As a point of reference for young actors and as a source of ideas for the realization of important events such as “Girovagando” and “Sogni a Spazi Aperti”, and thanks to its important activity, the company has given an irreplaceable, substantial and profound contribution to street arts.

GERNIKA theatrical action in four movements

The performance is the result of several years of work and research, based on suggestions associated to the masterpiece of Picasso’s famous painting as well as to many other images recalling everyday life in a city that witnesses the destruction of its purity by the brutality of a cynical and unexpected attack. It is a ‘silent’ performance, in which up to 12 actors/musicians perform by means of body language and movement. Their movements and actions follow a soundtrack, composed  by the magnificent  verses of the contemporary Italian poetess, Maria Grazia Calandrone, recited in Italian, Spanish, French and German and by a highly effective choice of music pieces. “Gernika” is a performance recommended for a broad spectrum of audience: it is a moving performance, emotional and rich with cues both for the understanding of Picasso’s work of art, and for current historical events.
