In the complex journey that takes us from childhood to adulthood, adolescence is the transitory place of anxieties, of transformations, the place where dreams and desires, coming with childish charm from the light-heartedness of childhood, are projected onto future in dialogue (and often clashing) with reality. As fairy tales teach us, however, this is the journey necessary to understand who we are also and above all through dialogue with our deepest fears. Thus in Symposium of Silence: a story between dance, clowning and theatre, conceived and constructed as a fairy-tale journey into the dark world of the unconscious, whose geographies are inspired by the illustrated works of Lorenzo Mattotti. At the center of the story is the restlessness and fragility of a young protagonist and her awkward questioning relationship with big and heavy books that populate the scene. As bearers of hypothetical answers and viable paths, these objects, almost endowed with a life of their own, accompany her on a vertical journey in search of herself that almost recalls the illogical scenarios of Carroll's Alice during the famous fall down the rabbit hole.
From this fall backwards, images and movements follow one another, to give life to symbols of childhood restlessness, through the murky scenarios of a narrative dedicated to doubt, uncertainty, the precariousness of the self.
As in every tale of growth, the narration insists and returns to the dynamics generated by the demand and the desire for balance in the face of obstacles, the test to overcome, the safe place and the order to conquer: abandoning the presumed certainty of a center , the story launches into the precariousness of motion, in the search for a temporary safe place, for a plausible order, to finally give us back the only possible certainty: that nothing ever remains the same and that the condition of demand is the only way for growth, change, discovery.
