Fuga Perpetua by Yuval Avital
Icon-Sonic Opera for an ensemble, visuals, mobile sound theater and a vocal crowd
Performing: Meitar Ensemble
With the sponsorship of UNHCR and of the International Theatre Institute, UNESCO

Fuga Perpetua - musical terms meaning ‘always running’ – is a total artwork, combining virtuosic music for ensemble, a dynamic surround-sound installation in constant motion, video projections and a ‘vocal crowd’. The leading storytellers of the work are refugees in Kenya, Israel, Italy and the UK, narrating beyond words, through our senses of hearing and sight, intuition and imagination.

The ‘storytellers’ in Fuga Perpetua are refugees, appearing in the work through projected ‘interviews’ conducted by Avital and collaborators, where individual refugees were asked to relive before the camera significant moments and memories of their lives in silence.
