Entry Description: The Circus Inside
"The circus behind the scenes" was only a first step into the world of the circus. I am just starting out with images that did not extend beyond the visible. Now that I've got to live for a certain period and follow different circus companies and festivals, my vision has expanded and my obsession is that of a work that tells the very essence of the circus and its performers. For this reason I wrote my little reflection:
The circus is a fable and fairy tales make you dream. In a world saddened by a deep and broad global economic crisis, where no dream and no longer seems possible future, the circus, the idea of the circus, his sensationalism makes us even for a moment, perhaps a fly on the wings of freedom possible. It looks like a medieval world where the poorest of the poor wanderers who is attracted by the artists with their art make you travel to distant worlds, in dreams almost impossible. My investigation through the medium of visual art camera, talking about trying to understand it deeply. Although the actors have changed, technologies have advanced, the circus in his melancholy remains that bandwagon rooted in our hearts children.
The bandwagon has been going on if, with the queens, his soldiers, his kings. Laugh jester, for good luck, so death go away (Dal Carrozzone di Renato Zero).
