Towards the end of the project

The partnership will share very soon the main fruits of their last two years collaboration which are two important books in preparation: The myth behind the community and the Ninth sense.

We are very excited to share soon those intellectual fruits of our recent experiences hoping to offer something very actual and urgent resource for other European colleagues.

The RIOTE 3 project will end on the 30th September. The last project activities were in Hungary, in the Castle of Pécsvárad on the 25th June giving space to the “final partner meeting”, then in France, in Villars Apt from 1st to 3rd July to host the last joint staff training and also the French multiplier event on the 4th July.

Such a melancholic feeling arriving to the end of a two years long cooperation, but also towards the end of a six years long series of projects (RIOTE, RIOTE2 and RIOTE 3).

Projects are ending, but the partnership will remain to search for new pathways.

And now it is still an exciting moment of the present project, as soon we will be able to share the main results. The Romanian and Hungarian multiplier events will happen in September. We are looking forward!

About the show:

The brave and fragile love story between Arthur Rimbaud e Paul Verlaine has been the narrativepretext to the creation of the solo “Fugue in Me Minor”.
A controversial, scandalous, wrong, sublime story, full of selfishness and emotional greed, paved with verses never written, as bright as a child game. The story of a love on the run, or the escape from a love. Undefined hunger, passionate thirst, boundless joy, a desperate yearning for something even remotely close to their idea of freedom and poetry; two contrasting personalities locked in a tender conflict, between themselves and the world, as if they were two souls trapped in the same soap bubble looking for a way out. And there they go, running far away, away from one European capital to another, away in the fumes of alcohol and drugs, away in tears, away in kisses, in the woods, at the sea…Chasing each others and singing in the attempt to “be” poetry. Just as in the Pianist’s Fugue the two hands run after each others relentlessly, so do the two poets, fleeing in a spiral inside and outside themselves, in a vortex that seems to put under a magnifying
glass the contrasting feelings, fears, smiles and miseries that dwell within each of us. We do not intend to narrate the story of the two poets in this work, but rather to investigate some of the archetypes it offers us. We think that each person carries within him or her a poetic creature on the run, suspended between the desire to love and the need to be loved, between instinct and reason, wandering between superb failures and fleeting victories, guilt and desire, memory and hope. Uno one or more subjects pursuing and eluding counter-subjects, as in the thematic material composing the musical genre of the “Fugue”. Inspired by the structure of this musical genre, webhave built the dramaturgy in three movements: esposizione, divertimento and stretto.
From a “divertimento” we made up the title: Fugue in Me minor, a words play that opened up the way for poetic intuitions and narrative and musical references that have fuelled our theatrical work, our dance, songs and movements.
Escaping the outside world to find shelter within oneself does not seem to us to be an appropriate artistic act for these times we are living, nor do we believe in the cliché of the solitary artist who admires the infinite. But we are convinced that within each of ourselves, lies the archetypes and cultural ‘vices’ from which we must learn to flee.

Theatre-operations in Bežigrajska soseska 7 and in Sevnica – summary of the Slovenian rural&outdoor staff training

The RIOTE 3 partnership was in Slovenia last weekend (27-29 May) and discovered the social power of Table Theatre in the neighborhood of Bežigrajska soseska 7 in Ljubljana, thanks to Christiane Wiegand as mentor and to the local theatre team: director Vida Cerkvrenik Bren; actors: Uroš Maček and Zala Ana Štiglic.

Second day the partnership traveled to Sevnica to offer a one day long rural touring event for the approximately 5000 inhabitants of the little town. Performances were the Fugue in Me minor presented by Teatro Nucleo (IT) in Lutrovska klet, and the KlimaX performed by Antagon Akion Theatre and Protagon e. V. (DE) in the the atrium of the Castle of Sevnica. The public members were guided by the clowns of Une idée dans l’air (FR).

Janus mystery and carnival

“Attain to utmost emptiness. Cling single-heartedly to interior peace. While all things are stirring together. I only contemplate the Return. For flourishing as they do. Each of them will return to its root. To return to the root is to find peace. To find peace is to fulfill one’s destiny. To fulfill one’s destiny is to be constant. To know the Constant is called Insight. If one does not know the Constant, One runs blindly into disasters. […]”

(Lao Tzu’s Tao-Teh-Ching)

The team of Sinum Theatre has created a performance dedicating to the theme of winter solstice. The performance used poems and scenes from the life of Janus Pannonius (Hungarian Renaissance poet) and in the same time evoked the image of Janus, the ancient Roman Divinity, who was a determinant figure for cycle changes.

As part of the Riote 3 project our general aim is to investigate ancient mythologies as a potential tool for contemporary performance in order to consider and sense a different quality of presence towards our natural environment.
