I t’s dark in the hall. Three singers, three voices from different generations, rise into the air, evoking the era of the word revolution, and its meaning today. Around the space fly three hawks, brushing against the spectator (who is free to come in and go out during the performance), arousing attraction, fear, maybe even a sense of menace. Powerful, magical, noble predators capable of reawakening the spirit, of reviving curiosity: sharing the same space with these wild creatures provokes the same emotions as great transforming moments. Francesca Grilli explores the word revolution, and its meaning today. Extracts from newspapers, articles and magazines from all over the world turn into a sound act
through the voices of the singers. Every performance reveals, each time in a different way, the fragility of the word revolution, which is now devoid of meaning and is lost in a weak Western world, or perhaps has become idle or simply given up, to restore a moment of truth to it in the choral quality of the voices and the irrational, bewitching, disorienting flight of the birds.
