“The orchid is the most beautiful flower and the most wicked as well, a friend once told me, because you cannot tell the real one from it’s fake. The same is true of our time. In Orchids, as in all my shows, there is an attempt to stop the time I’m living through. To stop my time and that of my company, the people who’ve been with me many years now, but also the time we all are living in – Italians, Europeans, citizens of the world” writes Pippo Delbono, one of Italy’s most unusual theatre makers, collaborator of German choreographer Pina Bausch in the `70s. His newest production “Orchids” is a deeply spiritual exploration of the sense of loss and reflections on the flow of life. The personal experience is reflected by quotations from world literature, cinema and photography. Images and words, gestures, music and space come together to create an overwhelming emotional impact.
