Cirque de Vie: Colibrine
Colibrine -watercolour drawing by Eva russo-Cut out shape & digital collage.
Every time I assist to the show, she is the one enchanting me more than anybody else. She can catch my attention...more, she can catch my soul!
Colibrine has the scene for the hummingbird performance. Larus, her faithful and beloved hummingbird, dances around her at the sound of a delicate Oriental melody.
Nobody knows where Colibrine comes from, her name has been chosen from Costel, the Old Italian Circus director, from the Italian word for hummingbird which is "Colibrì", nobody knows her real name.
Colibrine doesn't speak, but nobody knows if she can actually do it. She communicate with her eyes and with her peace-giving smile.
This is dedicated to Rosanna who has introduced me to hummingbirds: the greatest experience ever!
