ROCK OEDIPUS

Oedipus is the front man, the king-healer, the king-shaman. He is in a lost word storage, memory and fetish objects, crashed in a “small-private-perverse” rock imagery. The show unfolds between continuous intra-textual references, on the one hand the fragments of the ancient tragic tradition, on the other some rock songs that have marked this very particular oedipal journey. Aeschylus and Sophocles coexist with the Doors, Stooges and Velvet Underground; they emerge through the music, and in many iconographic references, emotional suggestions, memory shreds.
