Gildo, the narcoleptic artist
Gildo, the narcoleptic artist is a poetic string puppet show, which plunges us into a scene from another time, another place, suffused in a mysterious atmosphere.
A fearless artist, living between dreamworld and reality, performs his show without realizing the presence of another character, both disturbing and friendly, close and dark like a shadow. A cabaret punctuated by rag-time rythms, with the emotion created by the tightrope walker on his wire.
Gildo the tireless showman, always finds somewhere to display his art. In theaters, in cabarets, in the street, because for him the public is what makes the theater.
