Partie Vide is a project created by Françoise Parlanti in collaboration with Eleonora Chiocchini. It examines the concept of inhabiting emptiness, defined as a space for relation and dialogue between a women’s body and three scenic elements: two chairs and a frame.
The set, designed by Paolo Morelli, becomes one with the body that moves it and simultaneously defines spacial architecture.
The time of the action unwinds in a fullness. A continues flux, a singular trip in which music, scenography and physical scores fill the senses of the viewers.
A real fulness, concrete, made of images that appear like fragile essences, like emotional glimpses or like a puzzle that doesn’t have only one solution.
Creation and crumbling of spaces which are constantly inhabited by the fullness of presence. Maybe this is just a preparatory rite or a premise for empty solitude. A Partie Vide which is maybe the end but possibly also the beginning of the narration.
Emptiness carries with itself the memories of the fulness that inhabited it.
