"How joyfully does one fall at the age of nineteen!"
On top of a skyscraper, nineteen-year-old Marta contemplates the hustle and bustle of the gorgeous, moonlit city. It is that time of the evening, when cities are filled to the brim with inspiration. The streets are teeming with people, lights, feasts, desires. Marta breathes in an air pregnant with possibilities. She leans over the balustrade and allows herself to fall. What does fate have in store for her? Marta is not afraid. Without even realizing it, she breaks the natural laws of time and gravity. The girl who keeps falling takes us along on a journey through life. Lilo Baur directs a fairy-tale about youth and the power of imagination, inspired by Italian writer Dino Buzzati’s short stories.
A cutting-edge European artist, onetime collaborator of Complicité and Peter Brook, Baur is inspired by the writer’s funny and poetic universe, working together with a team of talented Greek actors. The performance follows Baur’s style, with intense physical movement, alternating roles, and a dreamy mood. A chance to have a look at the real, daily lives of contemporary individuals.
