Music and words intertwine, alternate, merge with each other: the first impulse comes from A Man by Oriana Fallaci and from the verses of the protagonist of that famous novel-truth, Alekos Panagulis (who later became the author’s companion) , hero of the Greek Resistance against the tyrant Papadopoulos, who during the harsh detention to which he was subjected wrote, with his own blood, poignant poems on the few pieces of paper stolen due to the carelessness of his jailers. A story from which arise the reflections that make up Elena Bucci’s melody, supported by Luigi Ceccarelli’s score, in which the pulsation of the percussion, the sounds of the clarinet and pre-recorded voices reworked electronically duet in counterpoint with the word “live”. A political theater to not forget and give new meaning to the polis.
