BelloAbril*Theatre of Coincidences
The Pilgrim [Il Pellegrino]
The puppeteer tells the story of a being that travels the world collecting objects, memories, words... Through the experiences unlocked by the audience, the character grows and his/her soul is nourished. Everything has the potential to become part of The Pilgrim. Some see treasure where others may see trash.
