Written, arranged and produced by Diego Buongiorno, “The Bush” is a concept album that brings together music and narration, for a journey that encompasses Art and contemporary sounds. “My Heart is a Forest” is the live version of “The Bush”, presented in advance at the Palladium theatre in Rome. On stage, together with the author, the voice of Thony, the B.I.M Orchestra, ADDI 800, and Arnar Guðjónsson.
All will be played, together with other special guests such as Eivør, Sabina Sciubba and Lisokot, with the musical chapters of the fable, also played thanks to the performances of Chiara Colizzi, Hannah Sioda, Michael Schermi and Regina Orioli. The theatre and the scenic space will be prepared by two contemporary artists: Davide Dormino and Zaelia Bishop. Sixteen international directors will contribute to the screenings with the visuals made up for this project.
A work directed and coordinated by the author to represent the emotion and aesthetic of his vision, to reconstruct the romantic experience of something seen and told to others, as though recounting a dream, set in an imaginary place of unnerving beauty.
An immersive idea, an original fable that transports the inner theatre to the dreamlike world of fantasy that is born of the eyes; the intangible proof that Innocence, Courage and Imagination are able to defeat the fears in every one of us. An indefinable non-place appears like a state of half sleep, begins to perceive sounds, lights from beneath the eyelids, an intermediate space where one awaits only what is imagined.
