FUORI PORTA
(Clowning)

From East to West a “door” has a broad and meaningful symbolism. In all the different cultures, the act of “crossing a threshold” has the meaning of joining a new world and the door represents the separation or communication between the two domains. Not only it identifies the physical space that delimits the outside from the inside or vice versa, but also as a gateway between two levels: the well-known and the unknown, the profane and the sacred. What happens then if a clown receives a door as a gift and this door becomes a toy that opens with the key of imagination? FUORI-PORTA is a show of pantomime, music, improvisation and fantasy that will reflect on the visible and invisible doors that we have opened and closed in our lives. A show that cleverly combines the mimic technique with comic dramaturgy. Both in the street theatre version and the stage show. Pantomime is a theatrical representation abandoned for its difficulty and bareness, where action and narrative are entrusted to gesture, body movements, and where facial expression is very powerful. The body is a strong tool for communicating with the public who is hypnotised by it, actively participating in the requests of a white coloured clown that could not bare the weight of such an unexpected gift all by himself. His lively eyes look for the spectator and capture him by creating an invisible wire in unprogrammed, absolutely improvised situations that arise from the ever-diverse audience inputs. The finale that sees the main actor, the festival manager and a little girl or boy from the audience in an evocative fairy-tale atmosphere.
