Mount Analogue, an unfinished novel by René Daumal, apparently is the only novel in world literature to end in a comma. It recounts a journey to an incredible destination that is interrupted when the mountaineers see the first camp base and have a glimpse of their actual spiritual path. The end of their research remains a mystery and that’s where Eva Geatti starts her experiment: she continues the writing process to re-create the leap Daumal decided to take into the infinitesimal, the desire to travel, the search for oneself in the attempt to change things radically and understand chief systems.
La Vaga grazia (The Vague Grace) is the result of a two-year study carried on with five actors aged between 20 and 30, with the aim of revealing the special intimacy between bodies and minds that face a common challenge. The work on a peculiar form of freedom provides a glimpse of the plausible. The epic of gestures is not earthly, it has no heroes neither a recognisable narrative. It’s an allegory, the manifestation of something that is more than material. This way of acting on stage is deeply related to the live music by Dario Moroldo: a concert for synthesizers inspired to the late 50ies’ experiments and early avant-garde electro music.
Eva Geatti is also part of RECIPROCITY, a section of Short Theatre, with the workshop La geografia delle budella aimed at people up to 30 years of age, in the frame of Fabulamundi Playwriting Europe New Voices.
