Salt Itinerary multimedia opera transcends theatrical and music conventions.
Reflecting on Art and Madness, it revolves around languages, words as meaning and words as sound. Both are used as an extension of the body and melted in the construction of the staging as a tangible projection of the resonance of the words through sound and image.
Live audio and video electronic processing and diffusion of the voice, poetry, gestures, music and the drawings creates a polyphony of senses and a counterpoint of meanings.
Molding sounds, lights, pictures and movements as if being drawn, painted or carved, Salt Itinerary is a powerful, engaging and challenging combination of music and drama by one performer that shapes new grounds in electronic music and breaks boundaries between music, theatre, opera.
