CRATERE: Giulia Crispiani / Patrizia Rotonda

Scongiuro (parte I)

WEGIL hosts CRATERE, space for cohabitation that manifests itself as a daily flow of poetic words, performances, short lectures, which follow one another at the times indicated day by day. The ticket for CRATERE is daily and grants access to all the performances of the same day that take place one after the other in the scheduled timeframe.



Tell me where it hurts, I’ll see you there, in order to travel via words across bodies and constructs, to fill the breathless void with a summer wind that makes time pass faster. We hang our laments on walls as if it they were trophies, we gather bodies to give us courage, always busily looking for excuses to send each other love letters. Only together can we exorcise the spaces that surrounds us, bemoaning the time spent letting it all pass by, even though crying is a way to wisdom.

Scongiuro is a performance, a ritual, a relational space in which Giulia Crispiani – artist, writer and editor of NERO Editions, winner of the 2020 Young Collectors Award for Quadriennale d’Arte – and Patrizia Rotonda – singer, composer, educator and expert on folk music – meet to mix expression and genealogies. Patrizia Rotonda’s traditional singing and vocal experimentation is the thread stretched over Giulia Crispiani’s practice of writing and speaking.

An enchantment, an incantation, a spell that debuts at Short Theatre with two different but interconnected site specific performances: first at WEGIL with Scongiuro – parte I and then in the setting of the Galleria at the Pelanda with Scongiuro – parte II.

The power of words penetrates our present time, dragging us to a primordial, dense and dark place, between the end of the world and the beginning of time.

For Scongiuro – parte I, Giulia Crispiani and Patrizia Rotonda have invited Mackda Ghebremariam Tesfau, an activist and researcher dealing with racism and decoloniality, to speak at WEGIL, in strict accord with the intention of laying the Fascist memory of the space to rest.
