Solo for Real by Fabio Liberti and with Jernej Bizjak, follows a man’s journey inside his own head; into that place where images, memories and voices overlap in an overwhelming chaos.
The piece is based on research on mental illness. A subject that is still taboo in our society.
Those suffering from certain conditions are still labelled as less functional individuals and often find themselves in a situation of loneliness and complete isolation.
Solo for Real by Fabio Liberti wants to capture this loneliness, as well as the effort, that the individual puts into the struggles of loneliness, while trying to relax in it. It becomes almost an obsession, maybe a dream.
