The two souls of the piano are shown on stage, as a percussive and rhythmic instrument that is however associated to the world of melody. The biographical plurality of the lead performer, originally from Senegal but with French and Italian citizenships, amplifies the resonance of these roots. These are the main elements that act as a subtext to the entire musical score: the piano seen as an object, and autobiographical references. All this is displayed within an expressive journey through quotes and imaginary visions. A narration is thus created, opening to an internal struggle between tribal origins and the bourgeois, westernised, and colonial declination of the largest of instruments and its performer.
A production by Fosca, in collaboration with Scuola di Musica di Fiesole – Fondazione O.N.L.U.S.
with the contribution of Regione Toscana, in collaboration with Tempo Reale, Institut français Firenze, Il Vivaio del Malcantone (FI)
