Of the Nightingale I Envy the Fate

Motus

SOLD OUT

Running time 45’

For more than thirty years, Motus has been capable, like few other companies in Europe, of interpreting the urgencies and contradictions of today. With Of the Nightingale I Envy the Fate, they approach the Iliad and the prophetic power of Cassandra, archetypal figure of Western culture, re-reading it through a contemporary lens.
On stage, Stefania Tansini – a performer with an extraordinary stage power – shows herself as both vulnerable and combative, interpreting the Homeric character's foretold tragedy. In a performance that becomes ritual and revelation, a body and a voice who are victims of the patriarchal system reclaim their presence, in an acoustic mosaic of shouts, whistles, chants and hisses.

Motus was founded in Rimini in 1991 by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò, producing since its founding performances of great impact, capable of foreseeing and recounting the contradictions of the present. The company has received numerous awards, including three Ubu Awards and major special prizes. As freethinkers, the two directors have always taken their shows around the world: from Under the Radar (New York), to TransAmériques and PuSh Festival (Canada), Santiago a Mil (Chile), Fiba Festival (Buenos Aires), Adelaide Festival and Midsumma Festival (Australia), Taipei Arts Festival (Taiwan), Hong Kong International Black Box Festival, MITsp (Brazil) and throughout Europe.
