The Weight of Love (Open Rehearsal)

Open Rehearsal-Call for Artists!
The weight of love

The idea is that we start from a brainstorming on a poem of Allen Ginsberg titled “Song”, that we analyse it and then rehearse a short act that we will perform on the next Open Podium on February 21st.

This is a new activity of Collective Quelli di Astaroth and has been inspired by the Summer School of Luca Ronconi, taking place every year in Umbria. During a longer period Maestro Ronconi exercise with the students a theatrical analysis of texts and experience a lot of different ways in wich you can translate a (poetical) text into a theatrical experience. Since we have no Maestro now (do we need one?), we are all Maestro’s in this new and unique form of making theater.

Feel free to come and to take your own art skills and experience, dance, theater, singing, playing an instrument.
You find here the first strophe of this longer poem. We hope you get inspired by it and want to know more.

See you on Saturday 14 February
From 14.00 to 17.00 (Please let us know if you come)
The Open Rehearsal is for free

The weight of the world
is love
under the burden
of solitude,
under the burden
of dissatisfaction
the weight,
the weight we carry
is love.
