[ EPF 2017 – SHORT LIST ]
This journey starts in the past when, as a child, I was fascinated to see the “great creature” come to life and where strange and controversial things happen inside. The Circus is a magical, mysterious and strange world where light and darkness alternate to give life to the great show. A microcosm where elusive and disturbing figures move frantically in the shade of the tent as in a daydream.
I’ve always been attracted by people living in the circus, mysterious and fascinating people, always on the road. I followed some circuses in Italy over the last year, I lived with them and together with them I saw with my eyes the great work and sacrifice behind the big curtain. “Circus” is a project in progress. I’m still looking for new artists and new stories to tell.
