Long live the Renaissance
Project in Pre-Production.
Looking for a Residence of Co-Production.
Dindirindín! Long live the Renaissance is a musictheater project through which Vox Harmonica Ensemble combines two of the most important Art traditions from XVIth Century. Music from hispanic song books and ensaladas (a pre-madrigalistic local genre) meet the Commedia dell’Arte masks and characters. Goddess Folly intervention, having escaped from the famous In Praise of Folly by Erasmus of Rotterdam, will force the characters to learn how to detach from the need of wearing a mask, from the need of having an own identity…
Dindirindín! is a multidisciplinar play in which four vocal soloists, three instrumentalists and an actress explore Commedia dell’Arte dramatic language, period instruments performance and Erasmus philosophy.
The outcome, before unexplored, is a concatenation of hilarious scenes in which Colombina, Arlecchino, Capitano and Strega go beyond limitations imposed by their roles to, in the end, discover their humanity’s fool essence.
Folly’s spoken character stands a bridge between XVIth and XXIst Centuries reflecting, stinging and provoking with its divine powers the most unbelievable situations.
Dindirindín! becomes a praise to the fundamental goodness of human essence. An apology of freedom as a way to unattach personal and collective identities. As soon as Arlecchino or Colombina become conscious of the dangers implicits in their masks, they reveal against their own identities, breaking so the patriarchal power’s structure. They’ll shout, cry, hit and, by the end, laugh crazily!
