Malinconico is a lullaby. A magic dream. A ritual to channel the many faced, many voiced entity that is melancholia. A shared safe space to experience her low spirits, to reflect, and rest with her. Never to define her but to explore the vast regions between what was and what could have been. Malinconico is a proposal for collectively caring and carrying the many ways melancholia makes itself known. A moment to escape from the productive, rational, the rigid. A chance to dive into a sea of longing, under a heavy blanket of light sorrow. And perhaps unlock doors hidden deep inside.
Malinconico invites melancholia herself, to step into the (moon)light so she can comfort us. To take her in our arms and take us into our arms and take each and everyone in each others arms in our arms.
Malinconico creates a queer and crip magical-realistic universe, seeking solace in a gloomy landscape, lightness in the dark.
Malinconico is a relaxed performance. This means that we aim to make the show as accessible as possible. Feel free to leave during the performance and come back. Feel free to make noise or sing with us. Feel free to walk around. Feel free to feel whatever you feel.
