An essay on the Metamorphosis of writing and acting
There is a moment, a specific moment in time, marked by the darker sound of your imagination, in which the world becomes suddenly flat, where everything is sharp and cold, in which you sadden alone.
Because the wonder of the unexpected and the enthusiasm are urges, are drugs and when they disappear they leave behind a burden made of desperation that holds your throat with both its hands.
Inspiration has no rules, has no time, has no form. Inspiration does not warn you and does not look for you even if it founds you. Inspiration seduces you and leaves you as a man who woos you endlessly without ever touching you.
Inspiration is the improbable that becomes possible, is the amazing shade that is hidden between the folds of reality. Inspiration takes the shape of the emptiness you have inside, as well as the water does with the glass that contains it. It fills every space left in memory, it takes care of your sighs and triggers every emotions, one right after the other, in their most intense and violent form.
Just inspiration knows how great it is to make a dream come true. Just inspiration knows how rewarding is to find a start between millions of words.
And that’s why you just can not help it.

Sebastiano Filocamo. An actor. Playing roles as changing clothes. A gift a curse. On a stage an actor can erase his past. Live without an identity or work desperately to cancel people and things from memory. An actor becomes a woman when needed but strong when it comes to beat her up. Cry to make others embrace him but smile when life has been tough instead.
Acting can take you to an infinite illusion of a whole new life or take you to a world of fantasy, where the main characters are just yourself and the only one to know when the show is over.
Part of this project was thought to get into the contest Hasselblad Master awards 2014.
With the help of Santa Maria Foris as the inspirational location, Alvin Grassi the designer who made it and from the participation of two wonderful people, Rossella and Sebastiano, it came to light. I’ll never stop being grateful for all their support and love. The results will be there to be seen. Take a look at the gallery in personal projects section.
