Cinquanta Urlanti Quaranta Ruggenti Sessanta Stridenti (Dewey Dell)

Roaring Forties, Furious Fifties, Shrieking Sixties are the names of three winds that blow over the seas of the Antarctic.

There’s no difference between the sailor and his own ship. From the very moment when the ship leaves the harbor, a new, single floating body is born. This new being, tied indissolubly to the water and the wind, becomes an enormous organism whose borders are blurred.

Cinquanta Urlanti Quaranta Ruggenti Sessanta Stridenti springs from a reflection on the ship and its inhabitants. An obscure jumble becomes the general breath: the sound of a world where the man, the wind, the ship and the sea, inextricably combined together, form the only conceivable protagonist.

V (Justin Shoulder)

Faith speaks of a God that created the angels pure and good, but subjected them to a test.

Some passed this examination triumphantly, while others rebelled and were condemned to eternal torture in Hell. These are the fallen angels: devils and demons. Implanting passion and obsession, they can utterly derange human faculties.

Calling to life a demon for today, the creature V is manifest. In a ceremony of the senses, the theatre will become an altar for V to revel in the beauty and horror of contemporary idolatry and its fifteen minutes of fame.
