Premiere: Teatro delle Passioni, Modena, 16/01/2015

About this event

Lus (Light) takes its place among the unforgettable pages of theatre-in-music which Ermanna Montanari and Luigi Ceccarelli have created for Teatro delle Albe. In this concerto Spadoni’s prayer-curse text -a poem in Romagnol dialect, set in the early 20th century and centred around Bêlda, a clairvoyant and healer from the Romagna countryside- is coupled with an original sound architecture created by Ceccarelli and Roccato in an alchemy that sees on stage three figures duelling with their “instruments”: the kaleidoscopic voice of Montanari, Ceccarelli with his computer for electronic processing in real time, and Roccato with his double-bass. Directed by Marco Martinelli, Lus recounts without recounting the incantatory magic of sounds, as ancient as the world, embodied with force in our present, in the sick and blinded “faces”, in the whirls of colour, blood and mercurochrome painted in watercolour by Margherita Manzelli.
