La Forêt d'O // Maya Bösch // Sturmfrei Company

MAYA BÖSCH AND STURMFREI COMPANY will present the performance La Forêt d’O in Amorgos, during Up Festival, on the 13th of July, at the port of Aigialis. La Forêt d’O is a 40min performance, gathering together a choir of 100 people, to create a social sculpture, a forest of bodies that remembers, shakes and sings the tears of our time, around the question of memory and tragedy.

This is an open call to create the choir with locals and newcomers and to create altogether a strong symbol of collectivity. 
Useful Information: 
5 meetings will be necessary for everyone to meet and understand the flow of the performance. The rehearsal will take place in Aigialis’ elementary school. 
From 13 years old. 

9th of July, 6pm-8pm // 10th of July, 6pm-8pm // 11th of July, 6pm-8pm // 12th of July, 6pm-8pm // 13th of July, (to be announced) 
No specific knowledge is required.
Each participant must learn from the first three lines of Dante's INFERNO poem in any language (s)he prefers: 

Midway on our life's journey, I found myself in dark woods, the right road lost.

Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita mi ritrovai per una selva oscura, ché la diritta via era smarrita. 

Au milieu du chemin de notre vie je me retrouvai dans une forêt obscure, dont la route droite était perdue. 

Anyone who is interested in participating can confirm their presence to Chiara by mentioning "La Forêt d’O", their contact details and their availability. 
You can also confirm at the Town Hall.
