The absence of those who are no longer there generates new presence through memory. Symbolic darkness marks the state of widowhood and is transformed into the darkness of the earth, which, in the alchemical Prima Materia, finds its necessary premise for the transformation into a new form of life.

Il Canto dell’Assenza represents the third and last performance of the trilogy of memory, a performance cycle in the Rags of Memory project, which investigates the essential stages of human existence from an artistic, historical and anthropological point of view. The performance is inspired by pagan and Christian funeral rituals and remembrances, sinking the spectator into a “suspended” space-time dimension, accentuated by the installation scenery, in which the video mapping is superimposed onto natural and artisanal elements. The iconic work arising from the use of projected sacred images, opens up the horizon to the birth of virtual worlds, not real, and therefore distorted, blurred, similar to memories, mysterious and absent, yet still present because they are created by human imagination. This present absence, similar to the state of widowhood, was perceived by us as an ancient song, a rhythm that starts from the beating heart of the performers and transforms into music, a sound environment that is an expression of the biological ego, the affirmation of life in the same moment in which the end is celebrated.
