Let salmons climb waterfalls
In order to reproduce, every year millions of Salmons leave the open sea and embark on their final expedition: to climb the purling rivers of sweet water and reach the top of the waterfall where their life once began. An unstoppable race which ends with their inevitable death. Nature uses them as vectors of life at the expense of their very existence. What drives them to venture on this journey without return?
The Italian Alessandra Ferreri - actress, philosopher and assistant for, among others, Mount Olympus - investigates with performer Matteo Sedda and sound designer Joshua Vanhaverbeke, the non-tragic definition of Nature in its cyclical birth and death, through an organic, contemplative dance.
