Beschreibung des Events
It’s a show almost entirely made by women, just like our world of weaving.

Zu diesem Event

The show will be played in italian and sardinian language. A English traduction will be available online in the project website.

Istós - a word that means “loom” in Greek - originates from the hills and mountains of Sardinia, the island that lies in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. It is inspired by the legend of the Il Cervo In Ascolto (The Listening Deer), recorded in the collection Miele Amaro (Bitter Honey) by Salvatore Cambosu, a Sardinian writer and journalist who operated between the ‘30s and ‘60s. The story features fantastic elements through which the origins of the several schools of Sardinian weaving are told, the last textile traditions still alive in Europe, consisting in craftsmen, small cooperatives and labs where the pieces remained handmade and each carpet or tapestry has its own unique story. The character of the deer, represented both in the story and in theshow, mysterious and ambiguous, present or evoked, is a key element to portray what in Sardinia is described through the Carnival: the close link between life and death, Eros and Thanatos. Carnival itself, in some parts of Sardinia, is still today a very important moment in the life of some villages, featuring great archaic rituals that are handed down from generation to generation - the frightening looking masks like Mamuthones of Mamoiada or Boes of Ottana or the equestrian rides like Sartiglia in Oristano.

The show is directed by Maria Assunta Calvisi, from Effimero Meraviglioso, and written by Virginia Garau, from Teatro Tragodia, who are two strong women of the Sardinian theatre scene, active for over 30 years in the production of shows and in education. The original soundtrack is by Rossella Faa, a Sardinian composer, musician and actress, eccentric and full of surprises. To embellish the show there will be a multitude of colors that, thanks to the graphic pen of Carol Rollo, will come to life on stage creating a fantastic tapestry, originated from the union of all the symbols from the different schools of Sardinian weaving as described in Cambosu’s story. The costumes of the show - made by Caterina Peddis, actress and costume designer of Teatro Tragodia for about 20 years.
