Synopsis
An entire century of technological revolution appears summarized in three milestones, which earmarked – each one with its own particularity- the history of humanity.
Three Tales risks in both content and format (it has very little resemblance to what the collective imagination would call a lyrical production) in order to trace an arch from daring transport to the future of our species.
In Hindenburg, is a reference to the brutal explosion of the zeppelin in Lakehurst, New Jersey in 1937.
Bikini recalls the nuclear testing done after the end of the Second World War, in which it was necessary to forcefully displace a local populated centre, which was completely unrelated to this western madness.
Dolly travels to the beginning of the race for cloning, to be followed by the conceptualization of the human body as if it were a genetic machine that could be modified at will.
The powerful images of thee Three Tales are supported by the musicians and singers just under the large screen. This work invites us to reflect on the lights and shadows of scientific advances, whose implications, even today, are inconceivable.
