[Fish Map - where is the Fish going to now?]

“Ein Schiff auf hoher See. Eine unerklärliche Windstille.
Merkwürdige Fische besuchen das Schiff. Es sind die Fische, welche die Augen der Ertrunkenen gefressen haben und mit ihnen ihre Geschichten. Und diese erzählen sie nun weiter.
Ist es reines Glück oder ein Ansatz des Untergangs in die Abgründe?

Postcard

13 artists from Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Greece, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Russia and Poland have been working 10 days under the artistic direction of Nadja Grasselli to create a new performative format:  a travelling performance, born from the interaction between music / performance / video / animation. Collecting stories, retelling them, collecting new ones, retelling them… in and endless process.

THE PROJECT

Twelve young people – artists and organizational staff – living in Germany, the Netherlands and Italy, but coming from all over Europe, worked together for two weeks on an international production creating a multimedia performance. This is inspired by La stiva e l’abisso, by Michele Mari and reinterpreted according to the M.A. thesis written by Nadja Grasselli and to the inputs of the international group of artist coming together. The performance is in different languages – mainly Italian, but also German, English, French, Finnish ….
