ORF / AGE is the third moment of Luisa Castellani's project for the Conservatory of Italian Switzerland with the company Controluce: to allow baroque music and contemporary music' dialog through Shadows Theatre. The project offers to graduate students of Lugano Conservatory the opportunity of working on a staging in which different gestural languages co-exist, from baroque to contemporary theater, using shadow theater both as a scenographic world and above all as a chance to investigate the psychology of the characters: shadow as double, unconscious, unspoken, dream, beyond.
Monteverdi and John Cage meet thanks to the myth of Orpheus, which allows to probe fundamental elements of the poetics of both: sound, silence, space.
Monteverdi's Orfeo (1607) and John Cage's Songs and Litany investigate the profound meaning of music and being, which, through the ephemeral and magical suggestion of the shadow, become a theatrical action.
