Made in ILVA (The Contemporary Hermit) is a masterpiece of physical theatre exploring the impact of the biggest steelworks in Europe on the environment and surrounding population.
Made in ILVA (The Contemporary Hermit) is an innovative example of “contemporary bio-mechanics”, an emotional and poetic exploration of the condition of alienation and oppression of a human body reduced to an artificial machine. The performance is a perfect combination of extreme physical actions, sounds that become obsessive rhythms, original music, vocals and video projections. From an original script based on real life testimonies and poems from the workers at the ILVA steel plant in Taranto, the scene for the steelworks scandal. ILVA of Taranto is the biggest steelworks in Europe. The company has been accused of its factory emitting 90% of the total dioxins released into the Italian air and of causing 180 workplace deaths, the disablement of 8,000 and in 20,000 further deaths from cancer and leukemia.
The performance is a perfect combination of extreme physical actions, sounds that become obsessive rhythms, original music, live voice and video projections. A critic to the impact of the factory on the environment expressed through the visual and physical theatre of this world touring ensemble.
