Habby Birthday to me... is the song Lu sings to himself when, on his ninth birthday, he finds himself isolated in his bedroom, unable to share his special day with others. Amid flying gift-wrapping, virtual battles, shoes that come to life, and walks on the ceiling, Lu will discover that loneliness cannot be defeated. Because it is not a monster to be defeated.
Komorebi is a small Japanese word meaning "light filtering through the leaves of trees." The collective comes to life from the meeting of a circus performer and animator, Erika Salamone, a playwright and actress, Mariasole Brusa, and an electronic music composer, Filippo Bonelli. The collective was born from a desire to combine cross-cultural skills and a shared interest in research theater, figure theater, contemporary circus and the world of childhood.
