An original and experimental composition, Rags of Memory – The ritual is a play based on physical and vocal actions, live music, and video-projections. The stage is set with three circles of light filled with symbolic elements: rice, soil, stones, water, fire. A timeless holy garden where a man and a woman, on stage or projection, perform mysterious ritual actions and songs, each time in an original and unique way.
The performance is a metaphor for the circle of life where birth, pathos, and death represent a cyclic and repetitive path fixed in the eternity of the ritual. The main theme is memory as an integral part of an human being, biological and anthropological condition for his existence, the memory of human beings who have suffered atrocities such as war. Starting from these suggestions, the group has began to reflect and create physical actions, songs, texts, photos, videos, artistic installations, music, developing these fragments, these rags, thanks to the interaction with different spaces, places and cultures, met in the countries in which the project has been developed since 2006.
The event is free and open to all.
