The original Divine Comedy – completed in 1320 – described the experience of human souls in limbo and a nostalgia for their previous life. In its time this was a critique of dysfunctional states and societies out of control. All of which is equally relevant in 2022.
Theatre company Spreafico Eckly was established in 2013 in Bergen. It often uses elements from the past to view the present in a new light. Their performances are intended as pauses in the constant flow of information humans receive, and as a reflection on the present. Matteo Fargion is a composer, performer and teacher. He has created four performances together with Spreafico Eckly since 2017.
