The Journey Of A Warlike Mind
Rose rises from underneath her tomb. From the dead, from the past. She alerts for an imminent war, for the extreme necessity of transformation of a woman’s soul, a woman who has stopped feeling. She has the key to the mind of Eva, and takes the audience into a fantastic adventure through imagination, fantasy, mystery, laughter and tears. The hardest journey of them all: from the mind to the bottom of the heart.
Based on true stories of childhood, trauma, love, loss and violence, “The Journey of a Warlike Mind” deals with the tension that lives in the relationship between all the voices that live inside our minds, and establishes a modern discussion on gender in a deep and intimate level. Eva has been silent for too long and needs to seek her essential voice.
Drawing from the roots of theatre and using the simplest and most accessible ingredient for healing – stories, the play explores the ugliness of traumas in contraposition to the beauty of transformation. It is inspired by the book “Woman who run with the Wolves”, by Clarissa Pinkola Estés, and the work of Mary Wollstonecraft (1759 – 1797), a British writer and philosopher, considered the mother of modern feminism.
Bold and provocative, the play is the result of a one-year deep research into the craft of acting combined with a strong dialogue grown from original poems, paintings, tales and dramatic scenes. It is about encounters – especially those that live within. The universe of this unique piece is embedded with elements of African music and dance, modern and electronic music, allied to a detailed physical composition of action scores and characterization. Above all, "The Journey of a Warlike Mind" is about change, transformation and transcendental hope.
