Site-Specific Performance, Sardinia

Performance as part of the "Meeting Odyssey" project, an experiment with text, natural materials, salt, milk, clay. The theme of migration is now extremely relevant to the Mediterranean region. There's a fragment in the Odyssey where Odysseus talks to his friends who have descended into the underworld and become the shadows of themselves. Much the same is happening now with conpemporary migrants: As they move from one country to another, they do not simply change their place of residence, living conditions and climate, but they change everything: environment, biochemistry, home, close friends. They part with the past, the native, the familiar, it is as if they die and are born again. They are the actually shadows of themselves, ghosts to old friends and acquaintances.
