Poema dei Anni Perduti (All the Lost Years), 2016

Premiered in 2016 during Il Groviglio di Esistenza, at the Castel dell Ovo, Naples, Italy 

Inspired by Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels, four versions of the same woman repeat a poem about the lost and wasted time in one’s life. Initially spoken in succession, the voices increasingly overlap, becoming both more insistent and unrecognizable, evoking a passionate plea replete with frustration and pathos.
