The production

A group of children with disabilities gets lost in the woods. Or maybe they were abandoned. Maybe they were chasing a love. Perhaps the woods, one day, just grew around them. Our present tells us: things happen. They surprise us, and all we have to do is to figure out if we can survive them or not.
Chiara Bersani takes her audience and performers on a journey into the underwood of an imaginary forest. In this mysterious environment, sounds and gestures gradually evolve into an independent language. The work builds upon workshops with persons with motor disability. In collaboration with these participants, Bersani investigates how bodies with disabilities can coexist with nature. She continues her in-depth, artistic interrogation of the politics of the body, and asks how self-constructed images interact with social narratives – how bodies dance.
