KALO – Son of the Wind
Kalo – Son of the Wind tells the story of Suki, a gypsy storyteller who wants to save the memory of her people. Baxt is the luck, a ghost who protects her. Suki and her luck, Baxt, travel together transiting between two worlds: the real and the imaginary, what can be seen and what cannot.
The text Kalo was offered to the Cia Os Buriti by its author, the french Maurice Durozier, one of the oldest actores performing in Theatre Du Soleil. The author came a long journey following the main gypsy route that starts in India and ends in Spain living among different Gypsy groups. From that experience the text Kalo is born.
The company`s staging interacts with dance, theater and has its own and original soundtrack played live. In partnership with Cia Lumiato, Os Buriti also work with shadow theater as an important stage element.
