SANTARCANGELO FESTIVAL 2018

THE NATURE OF THE FEAR

Come play with us, Danny.
- Grady Twins
(from Shining by Stanley Kubrick)

Think of something that scares you.

***

Try to notice what happens to you.
Your pulse increases and you're through a light and annoying sensation.
A slight echo of fear.
Maybe that's not what you wanted to try reading the introduction at a performing arts festival.
So you reject the sensation, you slice it in that corner of your mind where you bury all the unpleasant things.
You have just done one of the most common actions, which is repeated every time, every day, in every part of the world.

***

Fear - or the constant escape from fear - is the most pervasive condition of contemporaneity.
Fear has become more than just an emotion: today it is a lever that guides the economy, politics and social relations. Markets are falling and rising, elections are being won or lost, all on the basis of fear.
But fear is first of all a physical experience, which resonates in the bodies with a shiver, a tremor, an accelerated beat, a breathless breath, in short, the heart in the throat. Fear is also the threat that creates distance between bodies, restricting their movements in public space.
So, if last year we chose to look at the body as a political instrument, in this 48th edition of Santarcangelo Festival we will investigate the politics of emotions.
Because if fear is a natural condition, what you are afraid of â and because â it is an all-policy issue.
Nyctohylophobia - the fear of the forest at night - is a phobia we learn from fairy tales, among monsters and murderers lurking in the dark. Fear is reinforced in repetition, through stereotypes: in the same way that as children we have been repeatedly exposed to frightening images of dark forests, now as adults our fears are manipulated through a terrifying narrative produced by the contemporary cycle of news.

***

Feelings, emotions and contact with nature are dimensions traditionally attributed to the sphere of irrationality, neglected in the formation of individuals and in our daily lives.
In our opinion, however, emotional intelligence is one of the skills that needs to be re-appropriated most urgently, because it is crucial in enabling us to recognize the reality in which we live.
This edition of the Festival draws an emotional landscape: it is a dark, fascinating night forest. You are all invited to rediscover this dimension, to regain possession of the connection between mystery, nature and emotions. Follow us on a path that crosses different emotions and nature itself, which will let us emerge into secret meadows, follow the course of remote streams, landing on beaches at dawn.
We're waiting for you for a Festival where nature is co-author, where a sunset will have the same role as a performer on stage.
Can a performing arts festival arouse the feeling of when, children, we enter a forest at night? The excitement and terror of freedom.

With affection,

Eva Neklyaeva and Lisa Gilardino
