The Earth is not just my mother, The Earth is my lover.
I'm madly in love.
"Ritualia" is an artistic project investigating choreography.
The main subject of the research is the practice of magical, non-institutionalized rituals and the choreographic practices associated to them. At the base of the performance stand the interpretation from a contemporary perspective, the contextualization, the revitalization, the re-introduction of corporeality from ancient practices.
The RITUALIA crew is interested in alternative rituals, different from those legitimated by society, rituals in which the body is emphasized and becomes an important and definitive part in the cathartic process of transformation; rituals that in most cases are performed / conducted by women in contrast with those legitimated by society, implemented in the institutionalized collective practices, generally performed by men.
We are building a temporary artistic society that promotes gender equality to create the habit of bringing people together, to enable meetings, to re-evaluate the system we live in and the idea of the stage spectacle, to create options and possible alternatives.
