Almas Ardientes


Because it is a very great pity never say what you feel…
Virginia Woolf, Mrs Dalloway

What always happened, happened; the same happened every evening of their lives.
Virginia Woolf, Mrs Dalloway

Burning Souls recounts a day in the life of nine women. A day like any other day. Until the extraordinary bursts with the violence of the unexpected. Burning Souls is a kind of negative Bildungsroman: our women discover the existence of the otherness; they understand - for the first time - that beyond the protection of their homes something, perhaps, may include them. Burning Souls is a giant earthquake in the hearts of these women, an awakening, a journey towards silence and awareness and also, of course, the happiness of seeing together on stage these nine women, braving the storm and having a great time.
