Cinzia Pietribiasi (IT)

During her residency at ZONA K, Cinzia Pietribiasi worked on a project she had been imagining for some time: a performance that could tell the story of a relationship. That of a daughter with her father. No representation, no characters: a story that is not told but rather traversed. The narration proceeds in fragments, images from memory, historical events and covers a period of time from 1979 to 1992. But Father of Love Father of Mud is present life. The spectators are summoned to be witnesses of an act of love that takes place in the creative process and ultimately in the performance itself. If there is a meaning, the only salvation lies in a collective hymn to life.
