The two plays Ciseaux à Volailles and Morbid by the writer Fausto Paravidino depict with cynicism the grotesque and burlesque character of the italian society.
The failover between reality, fiction and dream is underlined by a giant mirror wall that divides the stage in two spaces.
As the Pepper’s Ghost technique used in the magic show of the early XX° century, the two way mirror gives the illusion to make actors and situations appear by magic while becoming transparent and make the images disappear in an instant.
Used as a mirror, the wall reveals the distorted and deformed figures as these carnivalesque masks were the reflection of the characters deep nature.
