Mariangela Gualtieri - Voce che apre (Rito sonoro)
I’d like to get myself an open door, an unadorned door on which a motto has been inscribed which gets visitors on the alert, a sort of caution as they go: fear, exhilaration and trembling.
Here we are then, let’s go in: it is a place of silence and a place of listening. Here the human voice entwines its evolved sounds with the world’s archaic silence.
Of the cosmos. Here – I’m not sure why – the dead are also present.
Here the actors and actresses come to life, have done for centuries, consumed in the act of giving themselves – this is why they have been getting ready for so long.
