Come Le Ossa Negli Abbracci (Like Bones in Hugs)

COME LE OSSA NEGLI ABBRACCI is a metaphysical space in which to take refuge. A place permeated by the lives and poems of Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton, two authors with a common destiny: a bipolar disorder that will lead them, at the end of a troubled existence, to suicide.
COME LE OSSA NEGLI ABBRACCI puts on video, in six scenes full of imaginative evocations, the obsession of these two poets for themes such as God and death, transgression and love.
Through the interpretation of OsteoporosysDanceTheatre, Anne and Sylvia multiply themselves, becoming eight interrupted girls who try their hand at their art, their prayers, betrayals, electroshocks, light and darkness.
“There are no rooms there, nor a bed. The clock doesn't beat except to the vibration of my 4000 pulsations, and where everything was absence; everything is two, two that touch each other like a swarm of butterflies, and like the ocean, which reaches out to the land and retreats, and reaches out with that urgency that moves me, everywhere on my skin, crying out to the rocks.” Anne Sexton
