Chrysalis comes from a period when we had many young acrobats from Cirque du Soleil in our life, bouncing around us at our arts festival in Bagni di Lucca. Acrobats have a limited working life due to the huge stresses on their body. This is the moment when one of them is no longer able to work as the athlete she was. It is the moment when she must transform, reinvent herself. She feels bound and restricted while she seeks answers to her next road. Chrysalis is a metaphor for life when we must transform ourselves to become even greater, even more beautiful, more courageous than we were before.
