*The Whisper Kid, symbolizes a personalized love-god.
**she looks with a certain distance and
neutralityat the 2 creatures who address themselves to her;
**her image is of pureness and young innocence;
**to cut across this well-spread definition she smokes a big curled hanging pipe;
**sometimes she blows and creates air bubbles of soap with the inhaled smoke;
**by these actions the child character reveals a mysterious, elusive background of her own timelessness, of someone who could possibly be aged but appears this time in a gentle, different form.
*Luna, a human female
mortaladdressing herself indirectly (and sometimes directly) to the imaginairy love-god.
**she figures as a sculpture, perplexed by the whisper kid, but finally she looks straight in a
staticcamera while she sings her ode to love, she expresses her devotion to the subject (“love is the only master I’ll serve”) by her self-chosen verbal communication;
**her body almost doesn’t move, we only see a severe, sometimes frightened, sometimes completely desperate-for-love face expression.
*Serena, a human female
mortal, addresses herself indirectly (and sometimes directly) to the imaginairy love-god.
**she communicates her devotion to the subject by physical expression;
**she dances, using a whole spectrum of facial and body statements, interrupted with spasmodic blitzes of short falling moves and/or like
electric shocks, like face and body are crying of pain and uncontrolled passion originated by the subject (as it appears sometimes when long periods of a constant energetic and inner peaceful mood is suddenly effected from outside, unexpectedly and on first sight unnecessary, like the pain of a needle in a body which is in a gentle, lovely sleeping state, a pain, abrupt and short, but more hurting, much deeper as one isn’t prepared for it).
