Paula Galimberti presents MAGICAL REALISM

It is the idea of showing something strange, unreal or fantastic in a very common everyday way.

It portrays fantastic events in an otherwise realistic tone. It brings contemporary social relevance to fables, folktales and myths. Fantastic traits given to characters, such as levitation, telepathy and telekinesis, help to embrace modern political realities that can be phantasmagorical. The purpose of magic is to acquire knowledge, power, love, or wealth; cure or ward off illness or danger; ensure productivity or success in an enterprise; cause harm to an enemy; reveal information; induce a spiritual transformation; deceive; or entertain. ( When ghosts appear it is to help the main charecters with something).

We can be ghosts of Deceased persons, Unborn persons, Objects, Places, Family, Emotions, Feelings. We are never surprised because we see a ghost, it is normal for us. We do not wiggle or do things to show that we are flying or disappearing. Everything is normal.

We can interact with everyone in the scene. We all see everyone. It’s not like I’m talking to my dead grandmother and everyone else doesn’t see her. She’s there and we can make the decision to talk to her or not, but she’s there.

We can be in different times, past, future, present. So anything can happen we just have to open our minds and let our imagination run wild.




See you in a MOMENT!
