Classica Orchestra Afrobeat
with the sculptures of the Mutoid Waste Company
As the title suggests, the concept of “circularity” is the inspiration for a new production by Classica Orchestra Afrobeat, the histrionic chamber ensemble conducted by Marco Zanotti, joined for this debut by the Mutoid Waste Company, a collective born in England in the 1980s but long since settled in Mutonia, near Santarcangelo di Romagna. Thus, with a group that combines the Baroque with the contemporary, and proposing scenarios with a strong visual and sonic impact, they will attempt a representation of our near future, when humanity will finally look upwards to a more dignified and sustainable life. To provoke an in-depth reflection on coexistence in an environment where time and life are not straight lines, but endless, spiralling Circles.
The event will be streamed starting from 8 July at 9 pm on ravennafestival.live
