Piume is a journey through the struggles and resources of loneliness. The emotional roller-coaster of a woman who is waiting. But for what? For herself? For all the things she has lost? For a new beginning? Piume is a loop and all the the possible ways to get out of it, a concert of gestures that creates powerful images. Piume explores the language of clown and overcomes it, playing upon the poetic and grotesque, the comical and subliminal, between rhythms and the flight of birds. Elena Burani investigates the condition of waiting, an emotional seesaw between the freedom to ‘be’ and the fear of not being enough for oneself, of not being able ‘to be without’. Does the gaze of those we love draw the boundaries of our being? Piume plays upon the margins of what we mean by circus, dance, theatre, music. And celebrates the human fragility is all its strength.
