AXTO – Oratorio per corpi e voci dal labirinto

What is the labyrinth? A place to get lost or a place to hide what scares us, what you can not understand? A prison, a madhouse, an island. The labyrinth is the place where the symbolic sacrifice is made, so the animal evolves into man. Let’s get into the labyrinth, the human brain, let’s get lost, let’s leave a red thread behind us to find the exit, or maybe the entrance. A path that speaks of extreme solitude and walls, which should protect us and which instead only consolidate our isolation. We realize that there is no way out, that the limits are within us. The monsters are in our eyes, the walls in our mind. We eagerly seek the light and re-emerge from the infernal architecture of our thoughts only after having abandoned along the road a corpse, or perhaps a shell, a shell, which no longer serves us and turning back we discover that the monster had our face.
