General Admission See on official website
Elegìa delle cose perdute is an international dance-theatre event with live music connecting Icelandic residents with refugees, musicians and performes from all around the world.
Elegìa delle cose perdute (Elegy of Lost Things) reflects a nostalgia, a Sehnsucht, a memory as matter that traces back our roots and identity and, at the same time, the separation from them and the feeling of moral exile that arises from it: a dream of impossible returns, anger facing the time that annihilates, a send-off from what is lost and that has marked the map of our inner journey.
Fragments from the performance will be presented as part of the Tracing Fragments exhibition directly in the exhibition space.
