‘There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in’ Leonard Cohen
We are made of pieces. Between each of these pieces are cracks: break-ups, loss, injuries. Some we inflict upon each other and others on ourselves. This is what makes us who we are.
Spine-tingling theatre with exquisite poetic technique, Sollievo is an immersive performance and an enchanting and nurturing experience that engages your senses on a dream-like journey.
Set in a disused warehouse, 23 performers invite you to travel with them through a tranquil candlelit labyrinthine space. Listen to stories, peek into boxes, flutter through pages of books, join the performers at a beautifully set dining table and see the details of everything that has been broken, and everything that has been repaired.
Sollievo is the final chapter in a trilogy by acclaimed Italian artist Gabriella Salvaterra. Exploring the strengths and weaknesses of humanity, using the audiences’ own experiences, we can each find a meaningful connection with our own history.
