Camden people's theatre, London, United Kingdom

Butoh performance about diversity, inspired by The Two Noble Kinsmen by William Shakespeare.

Danced by Flavia Ghisalberti (Switzerland) and Ezio Tangini (Italy).
Music by Frank Heierli (Switzerland).

Down-a is about the guilt of the human soul. Difference and folly are acts of revolt in a homogenised, intolerant and repressive society. Each character is, in his own way, a distinct one soul entrapped in a guilty net.

In the non-verbal performance Down-a, the senses become superior to the mind. The audience has to walk the tightrope between reality and madness and, in a flood of senses, is confronted with its deepest fears, emotions and obsessions.

Down-a, down-a (vai giù, vai giù) is a refrain composed by an italian madrigalist.

Down-a is part of the “Project Something in between”. The project has been ideated linked to the evocative history of the memory of psychiatric hospitals and the healing of the legacy of suffering and embarrassment associated to them.
