Non stop music from 11am to 11pm
lyric poetry by Nicola Dal Falco
Twelve hours of cello to propose a vast repertoire ranging from 1600 to the present day. But Violoncelliade is something more: the lyric poetry of Nicola Dal Falco, Simona Perrella’s choreography, the video of Andreas Linder, the reciting voices of Federica Castaldo and Rosario Natale and also Flute, Guitar, Piano, Viol and the Jazz by Mariella Pandolfi and Bruno Persico: a living installation in the church of San Rocco curated by the director… . It is poetry that gives meaning to life, a transversal poem that crosses the man of every condition or status. There is no profession of poet, as Wislawa Szymborska said when she received the Nobel Prize, and what she characterizes through some “little words: I don’t know”. Each visitor will be able to walk in the church of San Rocco, stop, sit down, go away and return, be himself a curious partecipant and have the cello as a travel and discoveries companion.
I have always thought that the cello has a literary destiny, meaning its sound is a narrator. It is not the first time that with Luca Signorini we have emphasized this aspect, adding it to the reading of prose and poetry.
Now, with Violoncelliade, the challenge is more ambitious, because we should transform twelve hours of a day, from 11am to 11pm, into a continuous story where, at any moment, one can grasp if not the thread of the subject, a starting point for reflection and beauty.
