Description

A fragile and abandoned symbol is made manifest by an extraordinary artist. The unicorn is a creature without homeland and history, has been abused and misrepresented by mankind and deprived of a voice. Bersani now aims to heal their unique grievances by giving them a love, a story and a choice. 'I, Chiara Bersani, 98 cm tall, embody the flesh, muscles and bones of the unicorn. I, Chiara Bersani, 32 years old, I’ll take the responsibility of embracing and illuminating its long-distorted identity.'

This year, as with others, Scotland’s national centre for dance hosts some exceptional talent. Chiara Bersani is one such performer who is Seeking Unicorns.
