the first European festival on creativity

2012 Programme

Event #6

Alfredo Lacosegliaz, Paolo Rumiz

I Narrabondi. A reading in music

A story in music and words of what happens in the mind, body and voice of people walking—a metamorphosis that turns the stride into happiness. Rhythm and narrative awaken in us an inclination for oral history as old as the Mediterranean. A ‘Narrabondo’ is a wandering storyteller, a nomadic investigator who rediscovers a forgotten Italy and gives stories for a bowl of soup—a sort of Medieval troubadour who reveals, exposes, reassures, and finds a new meaning of existence in our restless 21st-century homeland. The music accompanying tales is inspired by literary suggestions and explores different levels and geographical areas. A performance by Paolo Rumiz, author of the texts and narrator; Alfredo Lacosegliaz, author of the musical score, drummer and player of other instruments; Ornella Serafini, voice; Cristina Verità, violin; Daniele Furlan, clarinet.
