THE TRUTH ABOUT MONTE VERITÁ will be presented at VERLIN from 19th to 22nd of April.
An interactive expressionistic silent movie installation and a live performance, inspired by dadaistic poetry and Rudolf von Labans eight efforts and movement theory, the piece focuses on the artist colony “Monte Verità”, one of the most significant sources of alternative movements in the 20th century and place of utopian escape.
A production by CONSTANZA MACRAS | DorkyPark. In coproduction with Schauspiel Leipzig (DE) and euro-scene Leipzig (DE). Funded by NATIONALE PERFORMANCE NETZ (NPN) with the kind support Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig (DE).
- Presentation of the work-in-progress: 6th and 7th April 2018 at 8 p.m.
E T H E R E A L…. like a nostalgic river flowing in Japan; wind spreading the scent of oregano on a Greek island. It is made of dreams that come true for real, for fun, for the sake of a performance! Wishes whispered to the moon in the here and now. Do your dreams and reveries still make you magnetic, as they used to? And your fears – those little bugs haunting your nights? Transform your beast into a whirl that moves you and everything around you, be it mountains or just piles of leaves. Time is running out! Tic tac tic tac tic tac… Will your utopia still be shining on the horizon when the world wakes you up?
A production by Emmanouela Dolianiti & Yuya Fujinami. In coproduction with CONSTANZA MACRAS | DorkyPark and EX-teater
