Seeking Unicorns

In 2021 to be confirmed | to be confirmed

Nothing is known about the unicorn. They have disappeared and their trace has been lost, partially due to the human greed.
In her solo piece Seeking Unicorns Chiara Bersani gives away her flesh, muscles, bones, eyes and breath to the unicorn. The mythical creature returns to us for a short moment to soon leave again to be with their kin. Chiara explores political notion of the body and how it is interpreted by others.
