The physical impact of the castaway on a desert island and the fall into the depths of one’s own interiority are in INSEL equivalent collisions.

INSEL, in Italian ISOLA is a choreographic and sound creation for 4 performers, which chooses a geographical condition as a symbolic reference to turn its gaze to the individual and the inevitable encounter with his own shadow.

Two figures, guarded by their shadows, find their only channel of expression in the monologue. Pleased by their own suffering tones, they do not contemplate the presence of the other. They plunge into the darkness of their own being, staging the drama of their own narcissism.

The shadows extend as majestic obscurity and voice, an ancient, deep voice, which with earth-shattering telluric vibrations unhinges any kind of egoic protagonism and leaves space, amidst the unformed and shaken ground, for the possible emergence of a community. The lament, from a solitary narcissistic expression of the individual, is structured in cadenced collective gestures. Prefices lead the ritual, while the voice of the island accompanies and soothes.
The voice, by Gavino Murgia, is inspired by the traditional Cantu a Tenore technique originating on the island of Sardinia.
