World Premiere

A rhizome is a stem that grows horizontally and underground, which can also have aerial growth. It grows without a defined direction and it is polymorphic. It can function as root, trunk or branch, regardless of its location in the plant and its living conditions.
When you think about a plant… what do you think? When you think about a plant… Does it have roots?
Does it have a stem? Does it have leaves? Can a plant grow almost without water? Almost without air? Almost without sun?

A vase, a woman, a musician. «Rizoma» is a work-in-progress about the philosophic theory of “Rhizome” from Deleuze and Guattari. A continuous research about sensibility, strength, adversity, and childhood. A
horizontal freedom breath in a hierarchical and vertical thought of daily life. A surrealistic adventure through the imagination. Visual poetry.
