Intimacy, vicinity, shared experience, gaze, listening, vision, sound, transparency, attention, vulnerability, energy, search for meaning, political radicalism, gift – some of the key words according to Gaia Clotilde Chernetich, Chiara Bersani’s dramaturgist – are the compass that can help to fathom the “otherness” of an amazing creator, thinker and performer. A hyper-human body artist, Bersani reveals herself in her courage beyond dismay, in her powerful inner rhythm to attain her own mythological essence.

Chiara Bersani

“The Body cannot escape being political: it can’t when it dives into society imposing its form on the world and receiving in response meanings, interpretations and expectations; it can’t when it is silenced, pushed off the streets, forgotten by the crowds”.
