Synopsis – Through a sequence of tableaux that come to life at the heart of a landscape of forest and water, NOMAD SOUL sketches multiple portraits of its principal character by varying both scale and materials, evoking all of her inner dimensions. Inspired by Indigenous spiritualities, where the quest for consciousness and the connection with nature are the very essence of life, the wolf-guide and the raven-conscience symbols encounter a woman’s many essences in a breathtaking journey to the heart of the intimate self. NOMAD SOUL draws spectators into a singular universe where surrealism, symbolism and poetic imagery combine to open a door to the depths of interiority.
