A dance macabre celebrating the risk of life. Nothing more than the idea of the final limit makes ourselves conscious that we are living creatures. The “dance of the skeleton” is a very ancient image connected with the strong relationship between the concepts of life and death. The “dance macabre”, a woman dancing with a skeleton, is an archetypical image that goes more deep, figuring the fact that life itself is a constant duet with the death. By a romantic-gothic point of view, there’s nothing so macabre, it’s only a matter of awareness. So let’s dance with the death to celebrate the risk of life.
