A Monologue with a Suitcase was born from Prove (rewind). It’s a new thematic journey shared with Guerassim Dichliev with whom I have worked with for more than twenty years, years of artistic partage where body and speech are expressed as the esperanto for tomorrow.
This work takes form through the themes of immigration and the embodied spirit of real life experiences as lived by the actor in Prove (rewind). Nerves muscles and tension, between dreams and reality. An actor accompanied by a suitcase, full of memories and future plans. Almost like a silent film in which the irony of his own fate is the only hope for tomorrow.
