Rumore di acque (Noise in the Waters) is a dark, intense melologue (short work for voice and music) written by Marco Martinelli on the tragedy of migrants in the Mediterranean, based on true stories performed by actor Alessandro Renda and multi-instrumentalists Enzo and Lorenzo Mancuso.
Rumore di acque (Noise in the Waters) protests the indifference of Fortress Europe to the everyday tragedy of refugees from Africa, who have perished for years in the Strait of Sicily on fruitless sea voyages to escape massacres and starvation in their homelands.
“The show leaves us astonished, indignant and not only: it digs beneath indifference, carving out faces, stories and sufferings that continue to live within us for days and days.”
- Massimo Marino, Corriere della Sera
Written and Directed by Marco Martinelli | Devised by Marco Martinelli, Ermanna Montanari | English translation by Thomas Simpson | Performed by Alessandro Renda | Original live music by Fratelli Mancuso
In conjunction with the performance this acclaimed Italian group, Teatro delle Albe, will conduct workshops with students from Scuola d’Italia Guglielmo Marconi, La Guardia High School, Corpus Christi School of Harlem, and Montclair University
