“Bianco su Bianco” is a theatrical clowning production performed by two actors with a circus background. The story follows two characters, an actor and the stage technician who clumsily supports the former and helps her in creating images that will carry the audience into a surreal universe. These two clowns reach out to the audience and lead them into the realm of memory, with remarkable finesse and precision. In a dialogue with their surroundings, the artists create a world where light breathes to magnify emotions and flesh out a series of scenes based in these candid yet surprising universes and geometries. In this production, the Company’s aesthetics meet a height of simplicity, a simplicity that is still adorned with plentiful surprises.
Performance presented in English, with translation into Romanian.
