FÜYA Requiem: video trailer of the ritual performance
It is an emotion to share the video summary of my new performance FÜYA Requiem, which debuted for the first time a few weeks ago in my hometown Vicenza. In these four minutes I tried to condense the emotion of a journey made in 16 years of dance, meditation and writing.
«At the turn of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries, the Viennese Secession declaimed a return of the arts to the sacred. VER SACRUM. Today, if we look at Klimt, we pay more attention to the decorative style rather than to its message. The same happens when we look at a Greek statues or a painting by Caravaggio. Yet, between one selfie and the next at the museum, someone is still enchanted. You can see them with a lost look, kidnapped in another dimension. It is in that state of ecstasy that Requiem looks. We must return to pray through the arts.» Damiano Fina
