B (CH)

AN AUDIO WALK THROUGH A MODERN SNOW WHITE LANDSCAPE


A LABYRINTH OF MORTALITY

B is an installation in which the spectator walks alone from room to room accompanied with headphones. Large abandoned halls. The darkness of the forest. The dwarfs dirty old beds. A snap, a crack, a voice that whispers. Led by scents, sounds and light effects, the audience discover the abysmal, concealed and modern sides of Snow White. Based on The Grimm Brother's fairy tale, B tells the story of the transition to adulthood, the addiction to beauty, and the encounter with death. In this production, the story is not retold; fantasy is given the opportunity to interact with the staged rooms and sounds in a hovering intermediate world.

DYSTOPIAN FAIRYTALE
Snow White is the fairy tale of the transition from infancy to adulthood. In the classic fairy tale Snow White there appears to be something which is constantly in the balance between two opposites: life/death, luxury/poverty, immaculate/impure. These are the binomials upon which the narrative framework for B is grafted. The rereading created by Trickster-p doesn’t want to be a typical museum-like path which slavishly reproduces the ambiances of the story, but rather a sort of trip through the most intimate and hidden aspects of the fairy tale itself in a new and almost dystopian universe.

QUOTE


“Now I am lying in a strange room, on a bed that isn’t mine. There isn’t anything behind my closed eyelids, only a uniform red colour. I listen to the beating of my heart, slow, very far away. Come, we can go now”

Behind the scenes

The titel "B" comes from the Italian name for Snow White, Biancaneve, and is the second episode of a trilogy dedicated to fairy tales by the Swiss company Trickster-p. "B" has been developed similarly to part one of the trilogy “h.g.” (dedicated to the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel) as a room by room installation in which the spectator is invited to travel through the spaces in solitude accompanied with headphones.
