Elegìa_ISOLE

Y tomados por barcos somos islas.
Desiertas, intrincadas, ¿qué tesoros podemos ofrecer a quien no llega? Nuestra costa es difícil. Nuestro faro de voz en vez de luz
asusta más que atrae y ningún marinero perdido en cualquier noche
llegará a nuestras playas donde aún duelen las huellas de aquel náufrago que nos supo a desiertos.
La noche, noche a noche, nos promete y nos niega el rumbo del regreso, el tornaviaje, el amor que nos salve de nosotros y la palabra dicha para siempre. Hay en nosotros árboles sin nombre
cansados de su sombra y de crecer a solas.
Aquellos que no parten pero sufren de sed acantilada, aman los puertos, zarpan en sueños, buscan otra sed donde saciar la suya, nos contemplan, nos ven naves, felices.
Somos islas.
(Juan Vicente Piqueras)

ISLANDS is one of the chapters of the wider 2018-2020 creative project "Elegia delle cose perdute". This action takes shape in a period of isolation caused by the international emergency COVID19 with the intent to continue and deepen, despite the difficulties caused by distances, the articulated creative work around the construction of the characters of "Elegia". The state of quarantine imposed by the health emergency forces the interpreters to a solitude, to a tangible feeling of emptiness and precariousness, somehow bringing this feeling closer to the condition of the poor in the novel by Raul Brandao from which the creation is taken. We gather this significant experience, we open our eyes to see it well and try to treasure it to describe its colors in a carousel of moving images in form of short films, to tell the small seamless stories that reveal, one by one, empty and wishes of the characters of "Elegia".


DRAMATIC NOTES (by Fabio Chiriatti)

 

It is like entering a house, in a room to take a look, a hidden glance.

Moved by the curiosity to listen to these men and women, their bodies, above all, instruments of their saying. Everyone has a desire to confess, a desire so great that it cannot be said in other ways than with the body. Some are happy desires, others are irresistibly unhappy, but they are not less worthy or more dangerous. Is there anything more terrible and dangerous than a desire for happiness?

The focus is on the individual small stories, and then take a moment to get an overview.
