The poems from the “Book of Questions” by Chilean poet and winner of the Nobel Pri-ze for Literature Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973) along with the music form the ostinato of the performance. In these 74 two-line verses raising 316 puzzling questions he fre-quently and ingeniously masks the desire to fathom being at a meta-level in naïve un-concern.
The volume of poems was created in the last few weeks of the poet’s life.
The production IL CORSO is a parable about man’s search for immortality.
The conflict between the intensity and lightness of the moment on the one hand and the desire to capture that moment on the other hand – a recurring theme – is depic-ted here in a special way.
