Long fingers of a fairy caress the stone back of the world.
The echo of a grain of sand is lost together with the steps of a giant who’s lifting up white mountains.
Fire eater, stilt walkers, woodsman, dancers dressed in wood and powder sustains the collective lie, in the complete darkness of the “belly of the whale”.
This is Cleofe, a show freely inspired by Pinocchio of Collodi.
