The legends of the Aosta Valley tell of glaciers forming, lakes disappearing, forests growing overnight...in the imagination of our ancestors, climate and environmental issues were already present.
Starting with the melting of ice on our planet, following the migration of lichens to higher altitudes in search of a climate suitable for survival, we will take a journey through Alpine mythology to understand through the evocation of spirits, fantastic creatures and devils the future that awaits us.
The texts of tradition and the testimonies of today's scientists will guide us in the search for an answer to our questions about the transformations of the world we live in, composing an engaging "live documentary," a "emotionography " of the melting of the ice, leading us to explore our innermost anxieties and to share them with other peoples of our planet who know the same vicissitudes.
Alessandra Celesia trained at Jacques Lecoq's school of theater as an actress and director. In parallel, she developed a career as a documentary filmmaker, which led her to present her work at major international festivals, earning important awards. In 2018 she created the association Cursious Industries, which explores the boundary between the world of theater and documentary filmmaking, giving birth to hybrid productions, "live films" in which the protagonists are as much on stage as on screen.
