“FLYING IMAGES LIKE DREAMS BETWEEN EARTH AND SKY, THEATER, CIRCUS THINKING TO THE GENIUS OF CHAGALL” V. Ottolenghi (I)

Souvenir is a visual, aerial and poetic spectacle, inspired by Marc Chagall’s series of paintings with lovers in flight. A love story, a dreamlike journey without words, to touch the poetry of love and dreams in flight. Marc Chagall’s last night, where in a dream he meets his lost love: his Bella, his muse. She is the woman in flight, the lover in blue, the protagonist of many painted masterpieces that have influenced her designs for many years. And it is they two who are suspended in love, placid in space, where he, feet dangling like a happy child, holds his hand floating in the air, like a helium balloon.

Old Chagall, the painter of love like flying shapes, accompanies us in an amused dream, a journey through his memories, in a memory mixed with dreams and real life and in a rare, dreamy and fairy love that ‘it takes away from everyday life. Maybe there is still hope up there, because maybe loss is not the end, but a new beginning.
