SNOW IN THE LIVING ROOM|
In Snow in the Living Room, Orietta Crispino presents a visually striking and poetically sensual distillation of the classic Snow White fairy tale. Inert in her crystal coffin, Bianca finds that her liberation will never come from a redeemer outside herself; instead, she must acknowledge her own fractured soul and accept death as a facet of what it means to be fully human. Echoing the Tibetan Book of the Dead, Snow in the Living Room exists in the interstitial space between body and self. It is a dynamic story of fear and desire, told through splintered mirror images and complex soundscapes.
“I can’t escape my Shadow…”
Snow in the Living Room, written by Orietta Crispino as a poetic monodrama in Italian, has been adapted and translated into English by Marco Casazza.
