” –‘Here, here you have more light, here you have even more light!’
– If you really want to know the limits of the night, come closer to the sun. Get in into the Earth as the stones of the sky, walk from the Extra-World to the World”.
Saint Vito is the saint protector of dancers and epileptics that in the Middle Ages was the basis of collective dance phenomena until death. Fearing his curse, people would eventually go into a state of trance, dancing maddeningly for days.
Saint Vito belongs to the trilogy initiated with X-Ray, moving on with the study on the exceptional forms of sensitivity and lucidity.
During FITEI we will end the first residency phase with the project and are willing to share this initial stage of work with the audience. It will be a kind of exercise to organize ideas, display possibilities and talk about them.
