WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

S 16 - Luna Nera is a live installation inspired by the children's short story "Ciaula discovers the Moon" by Luigi Pirandello that identifies themes of displacement and isolation and explores the inhuman working and living condition of the piece's protagonist, Crow, a young miner in a Sicilian sulfur mine. The piece is conceived by Pioneers Go East Collective and performed in English with traditional songs in Sicilian (cantastorie music) and integrates video technology with projected paintings and sculptural elements that create visual and dramatic tensions to explore the isolation and claustrophobia of the protagonist.
