“We have an interval and then our place knows us no more”†.
A woman carrying a burden yields to memory, unfolding the space, with a desire to fall. Her wistful yearning towards home, in absence from it, as the shadows of evening deepen. Body parts and spiral streams as passages to self-possession.
†Walter Pater, The Renaissance
“There is resistance, there is pain, a reaching for rest; speech fragments with a confessional quality. Poetically narrative and emotionally powerful”.
Laura Santini, Genova Mentelocale
“Art beyond boundaries. A direct confrontation with myth, dream states, archaic forces of the human psyche. Physical work, action and letting go open the way for the expectant space, an emotion landscape in which the actors’ visceral spheres and the aesthetic composition merge.”
Il Seculo XIX, Genova
“And in her tears shed in such absences there seemed always to be some soul-subduing foretaste of what her last tears might be. A system of visible symbolism interweaves itself through all our thoughts and passions; and irresistibly, little shapes, voices, accidents–the angle at which the sun in the morning fell on the pillow–become parts of the great chain wherewith we are bound.”
Walter Pater, The Child in the House

Zikzira creates performances and films from an instinctive core, embracing the visual and visceral in a synthesis of art forms. Through risk, desire and organization of chance, the company devises immersive work with layers of meaning. Somatic impulses gives rise to movement; soundscapes, dance and imagery conspiring to form a whole.
Through a multi-disciplinary and site-specific approach, the company devises work with poetic resonance unconfined by genre.
“The art of theatre is specifically the art of dreams”
“My body is the intention, my body is the event, my body is the result.
Art is hope, prayer, and the possession of the individual”
