Floor Robert/InQuanto teatro (IT)
“We are not free. We are locked inside our bodies. We are bound to our history. We are inevitably part of the past. We carry within us things that are no longer there. We accept this. But there remains the possibility of coming and going between what is real and what is fantasy. How much can we be influenced by this?”
Influenza is a show to look at like a picture book, letting the images transport you into an alternative world.
Memories, desires, fears, presences from the past, a mysterious yet familiar universe.
Floor Robert moves among these suggestions, retracing with his body events and situations, real or imaginary, hinting at and unravelling stories.
Accompanied, at times, by figures that seem to have come out of those stories. It is a journey inside a room, but you can suddenly find yourself in a meadow, in a forest, or in space. To see everything that does not exist but that, for this very reason, ultimately influences us.
