Wanderers in the piazza move with hidden rules, just as the private collection in the stuffed locker.
Do those with shoes on and those with shoes off from the same gang or different?
Are they on the street, or in a room?
On and off stage, in and out of theatre, who is the actor?
Memory, fantasy and reality, where not a single wall can come between them.
This is a shared moment in time, bodies, space and objects are under spotlight, filled with sounds but only few people speak.
Don’t rush. The sun is still shining on those sensitive people.
The edge of sunlight is slowly moving. Some people are performing under the light, others, observing in the dark.
Is the universe as ruthless as the street? As silent and suffocating?
Fireworks and rescue, devastated and vibrant.
In the past people escaped to the mountain top to avoid disaster, now we move up and aim high.
We know the scenery changes along the altitude.
Further and more profound voices could be heard up on the sky, but it is also lethal if you fall.
Here on the battle ground, overwhelmed with debates and controversies, but those who are willing to remain human linger, indulged in the game of desire, and life and death.
There is not a space that can restrict the production of meaning; there is not a chain that can constraint the souls to look.
We know many have known that every exchange of looks speaks a thousand words.
