Loosely based on “The House of Bernarda Alba” by Federico Garcia Lorca, Silencio is a visual poem at the intersection of the circus, puppetry and music. The show evokes the closed doors of the House of Alba, in love fantasies of cloistered women, the tyranny of Bernarda, the call of desire, the weight of religion.
Living shadows, aerial choreographies on thus far and insistent rhythms… puppets, models and actors blend into different characters and draw a sensitive and dreamlike universe, a tribute to the poetry of Lorca.

Freely inspired by Federico Garcia Lorca’s The House of Bernada Alba, Silencio is a visual poem woven from aerial dance, puppetry and music. The show evokes the closed world of Alba’s house, the cloistered daughters’ fantasies of love, Bernada’s tyranny, the call of desire and the weight of religion.
Shadow-play follows aerial choreography against a background of haunting, incantatory rhythms… life-size puppets and actors blend, becoming different characters, creating a subtle and dream-like universe, a tribute to Lorca’s poetry.
