Freely inspired by the figure of Sonja in Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov.

 

A subjective view of the character of Sonja, a journey through the written pages of Anton Chekhov’s work. On stage, the drama of unrequited love and its “act” is evoked, from which the character distances herself to get in touch with her inner colours and give voice to her invisible, unexpressed part.

I felt touched by the character of Sonja as if this female soul resonated in my depths, a strange feeling of closeness and astonishment … with no little tragicomic courage I took my first steps towards her figure of missed desires, with her gaze turned towards the sky. Moved by a desire for levity, I glimpse a very subtle vein suspended, poised between the yearning for the sublime and its inevitable stumble…
