SONG of SONGS

Based on the “Song of Songs” Re Salomone

Written and directed by: Simona Lisi and Caterina Pontrandolfo

Music by: Simona Lisi and Caterina Pontrandolfo

Costumes by: Stefania Cempini

Choreography: Simona Lisi

Production: Associazione Ventottozerosei in collaboration with Festival Adriatico Mediterraneo and Teatro Stabile delle Marche.

Two women, two microphones – words, gestures, rhythm. A symbolic language that stores the origins of all languages and that searches for a dialogue trough the two rhapsodic voices. It is a winged song that belongs to the humans, it originates from the Hebrew culture and encounters all the others cultures; across the times, it arrives to all – peoples, lovers, and the ones who desire love.
