Painting trilogy on stage/first movement THEATRE FOR CHILDREN
Tam Teatro Musica
The authors, fueled by the richly evocative images of the painter Chagall, have woven plot and warp to construct a small story. They immersed themselves in his iconographic world to bring out a story that gives time and development to the painting. Such a silent world has thus found sonority.
The encounter between the bodies of the two actors and the pictorial images takes place within a scenographic device that allows the creation of hybrid figures between the real and the fantastic. The video projection is a third actor that dialogues with the real bodies and creates visual suggestions, managing to combine the two planes. The rhythm and musicality of gesture in choreographic form fill what painting lacks in order to be theatre.
In the performance, there are continuous transitions from the reality of everyday life (given through the rhythmic scansion of gestures) to the fantasy of escaping from it that allows us to enter the dream of impossible desires. These two separate and parallel worlds, of reality and dream, alternate on stage and end up blending into one another, integrating until they are no longer two distinct worlds, but a single moment that contains them both.
Human beings fly and from above they look and dream, cry, smile. Objects remember.
Animals have their own silence, which is a particular feeling. Colour.
Looking at Chagall’s paintings is a journey into poetry and emotion.
Subjects such as birth, love, loneliness, the city, the party, the circus, war, death emerge from the interiority of the poet-painter and take shape in icons that make one think of dreams.
Horses, roosters, goats, fish, storks, flying donkeys, lambs, cats and cows. Animals watch us.
And together with the animals, lovers, angels, violins, acrobats, musicians. And the city, motionless, time, motionless.
Every object, animal, human being in Chagall’s painting is an icon and as such has meaning. It means that every look, of child or adult, in contact with it is capable of evoking.
And by going through his paintings it is then possible to invent a story. Our research focuses on giving body and voice to the beings that populate his canvases and on writing a story made of rhythm, visual and sound, of colours and plastic forms that condense into a gigantic rooster or into the maternal womb of a mare, into the body of a musician on the roof or into that of two lovers flying over a silent city and in the meantime from afar comes the sound of a violin, the chattering of a party.
