Letters from the Prague poet Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)

On stage: a pianist, two dancers, an actor

Cenere (Ash)

Poetic Ritual 1 – For an Actress in an Empty Space

At 2 pm and replica 5 pm.

The audience watches and takes part in a performance: a listening space – an example of future 'gymnastics', increasingly requiring the experiencing of reality (or the enhancement of reality) and involving the materiality of the body in action.

read all

This piece, based on traces of memory, is the result of a process embedded in it, in which the personal, the autobiographical and the collective levels merge together, with no separation between the process and the doing, between the public and the private. Resonance requires proximity. Proximity, however, is not the absence of distance: indeed, the roles are and remain clearly separated.
the performer on one side, the audience on the other.

Anahì Traversi: performer
Fabio Pusterla: texts
Nadir Vassena: music and direction
