Do you dare to meet the unicorn's gaze when it stands in front of you?


10 March


Over the centuries, the mythological animal has been associated with the Pope, magic and sorcery, a modern popular culture icon and a protector of young girls' virginity. The unicorn has come to symbolise what people have chosen to associate it with, without knowing anything about its origins and development.

In his work Gentle Unicorn Italian Chiara Bersani mixes dance and performance to give the animal a story, a choice and above all - love.

For her, the encounter between her body and the audience is highly political:

"You do not have the right to interpret me - I am the one who shows you how to perceive me. I decide what image the world has of me and my body".

Choreographer Chiara Bersani, born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta - a type of congenital osteoporosis - is now presenting her first solo work at Dansens Hus.
