Concept, performance: Chiara Bersani

We know nothing about unicorns. They have disappeared and their trace has been lost, partially due to human greed, but the mythical animal itself has become a symbol of fragility and extinction. 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 the political notion of the body and how it is interpreted by others.
