About the play

“The question of what is real and how it can be represented in theatre, has always interested us” write Deflorian and Tagliarini. They have been working together as authors, actors, performers, and directors since 2008. In 2016, their research took them in the direction of the obsessive nature of the rhythms of contemporary life, and this “hyperactive efficacity” which constantly prompts us to see more and more, but which increasingly prevents us from looking around us, without any immediate objective in mind - and from simple contemplation… What do we mean by “to live in”? If it is true that “we have traded-in our interior life for an indoor life”, in what way do our various forms of shelter let us think about those left “out in the rain”? The Sky is not a Backdrop aims to strengthen the dialogue between make-believe space and the external space.
