"The music from the acclaimed opera by Puccini can be made out, even though strangely altered, from the male voice playing the famous part of Madame Butterfly.
Sailing through the beautiful islands of Croatia, a group of young men go through a symbolic exploration process which is simultaneously a poetic expression of emotion and a journey in search of identity. Idyllic images of the vastness of the sea and transience of the sky alternate with scenes that recall the history of art or mythology. All the actors play more than one part, interweave their actions and create a dialogue of individual voices that are united in a chorus in the aria of Mister Butterfly. The artist thus becomes the director of a sophisticated theatrical work which unravels, in the individual expressions of the protagonists, the desire of man to express emotion. The destinies of these young men represent many moments of a single act, many parts of a sole desire: that of liberating the world from stereotypes, of reversing rules and conventions to listen to theuniversality of the hymn to love." Sarah Cosulich Canarutto
