Project realized in collaboration with Short Theatre

Stuporosa takes as reference the study “Death and ritual mourning” by Ernesto De Martino to develop a choreographic study on the so called ‘lament without soul’ on the figure of the mourner. The title of the project is a quotation of De Martino: stuporosa is the groggy stupour, that state of catatonia that can manifest itself in the individual attempt to overcome the mourning for the loss of a loved one. A reflection on the act of crying, on the state of mourning and on the importance of a funeral ritual - religious or secular - to give meaning to death.
