Gaia, the primordial deity of inexhaustible creative power, the personification of the Earth and the ancestral mother of all life, is the protagonist of this new journey into the aesthetic-political theatre of ErosAntEros. Mother of the sky and the sea, of night and day, Gaia is at the centre of this searing lament, a step forward in the Company’s vocal-musical research, which uses a sophisticated video installation to urge the audience not to be indifferent to the past, present and future of our only common home: Gaia, the Earth. In its defence, and in the face of pollution and human exploitation, a group of local citizens and students, sensitive to what seems to be an imminent environmental catastrophe, are also on stage.

In occasion of the event: Round Table “Festival and Green: sustainability for cultural events and live shows”
