Luxury Travelling – Inside the Wild Heart

A review of Inside the Wild Heart, an immersive performance
directed by Linda Wise in New York and based on the life and
work of Clarice Lispector (1920, Ukraine - 1977, Rio de
Janeiro), Brasil’s most renowned woman-writer.
It opened on October 19 and runs until November 18, 2018.
BOOKING & INFORMATION NOT TO BE MISSED

The project was conceived and produced by Andressa Furletti and Debora Ballardini – directors of Group.BR, a Brazilian theatre company based in New York. Both are militant admirers of Clarice Lispector, and chose an array of texts from her collected works. They also envisioned the performance project as “immersive”, and chose the location. And, very important, both wanted to act in the piece, among a cast of twelve or so performers. This is obviously a complex equation and, I must say from the outset, having seen it three times, a great artistic and team achievement, a total success if only on those counts, and I hope lots of people get to see it since it is likely to be a unique experience.

Nekyia is the Greek word for descent, and specifically for the descent into hell, into the pagan hell, the Kingdom of Hades, the abode of the dead. James Hillman, in The Dream and the Underworld, says the Nekyia takes place along a two-way road whose traffic is all the more intense since, according to him, dreams are assembled in hell and take the same royal road as the dead do. Each dream brings together a cast of ghosts, ancestral ones or ghostly replicas of the living, often of the dreamer himself. Permission is granted them to visit us, the so-called living, usually at night, when the gates of hell open. Lire la suite
