IL MIO GRIDO is the artistic result of the Beyond the Borders laboratory carried out in 2010 inside the District of Rovigo in collaboration with Fabula Saltica. The goal was to provide prisoners with an artistic-training path aimed at a new rediscovery of the self and the relationship with others. Through vocal, movement and improvisation techniques, the prisoner was led and stimulated towards an exploration of his own emotion, based on tangible techniques. Every single movement and vocal sound is a the result of an empirical stimulus that generates emotions and sensations

The white background eliminates any possibility of placement in space.

Nudity expresses power, softness, liveliness and fragility.

Knowing nothing of the body that is on the screen, that it is beautiful, ugly, wrinkled, injured, lively, young, old, powerful, frail, the viewer will not see the prisoner, but only a simple and complex wonder, which is called MAN.

The single voice is a unique treasure trove of information and emotions, intimately linked to one's own experience and the place from which one comes, more voices together become chorus.

Inmates' voices and electronic sounds make up the original music, creating an inseparable relationship between body and voice, image and sound.

Video made with the prisoners of the prison of Rovigo thanks to the Ministry of Justice, Department of Penitentiary, PRAP of Padua and the direction of the prison.
