Artistic proposal between philology and multimedia about Renaissance and Baroque.
Early music's productions of mine are historically informed, offering interdisciplinary experiences - like multimedia implementation and artistic installation.
A concept of the performance as a moment of total inspiration, with the aim of the creation of a musical experience on more levels.

One-act play by Stefano Sabene for dancers, voice-over, singer, medieval traversa, viella, electroacoustic.
The Opera is inspired by medieval texts and monodic compositions by Hildegard von Bingen, which inform the composition as a Cantus firmus. Several characters come to life on stage, expressing themselves in the languages of dance, song, acting, instrumental and electro-acoustic music. A production of agile staging, complete with costumes and digital audio equipment, executable in a concert hall, in a church, or of course in a theater.
