Type – Visual Theater (masks, puppets and projections) – Without words
Duration – 55 min
Synopsis – Live action and projections create a sequence of tableaux that come to life at the heart of nature. In a landscape of forest and water, a woman meets her many inner selves at different ages. In these multiple sketches, both scale and materials vary. Nomad Soul is inspired by Indigenous spiritualities, where the quest for consciousness is the very essence of life. The character’s dreamlike journey follows the paths of the great wolf-guide and the raven-conscience spirits, totemic symbols that accompany her on a breathtaking journey to the heart of the intimate Self. Nomad Soul combines surrealism and poetic imagery, and invites spectators to open their minds to the depths of interiority.
