The brave and fragile love story between Arthur Rimbaud e Paul Verlaine has been the narrative pretext to the creation of the solo Fugue in Me Minor. The story of a love on the run, or the escape from a love. There they go, running far away, away from one European capital to another, away in the fumes of alcohol and drugs, away in tears, away in kisses, in the woods, at the sea... Chasing each other and singing in the attempt to “be” poetry. Just as in the Pianist’s Fugue, the two hands run after each other relentlessly, so do the two poets. The performance does not intend to narrate the story of the two poets, but rather to investigate some of the archetypes it offers us. We think that each person carries within him or her a poetic creature on the run, suspended between the desire to love and the need to be loved. Inspired by the structure of the musical genre of the Fugue, the dramaturgy is built in three movements: esposizione, divertimento and stretto. Within each of ourselves, lies the archetypes and cultural ‘vices’ from which we must learn to flee.
