The performance will address the increasingly blurring of the borders between reality and the virtual world. Our dependency connected to technology has completely changed the way we relate to others and the physical world around us.
The virtual world is becoming increasingly more realistic with haptic feedback, artificial intelligence and algorithms learning from human input. While older generations claim to have grown up in the jurassic era even they would struggle without simple
technology such as electricity. How do we as humans use technology to feed our own egos? How do we use technology to form unique bonds with others? How do we use technology to manipulate strangers?

Nostos – in Greek, νόστος – refers to the return, conveying the sense of circularity in the journey of existence, with the ultimate goal of finding oneself. Nostos is among the oldest and most widespread literary motifs, epitomized by the long journey of Odysseus. Significantly, it is a journey that leads back to the original starting point: home. A physical home, Ithaca. An inner home, self-knowledge.

Roberta and Alessandro’s personal journey, intertwined with life, music, and choreography, is following this path. Both are experiencing, traveling, and understanding the beauty of returning to themselves. The journey is long, arduous, and requires commitment, faith, and perseverance. Yet, they already know that once the objective is reached, they will feel like a sailor finally setting foot on land after endless voyages in a tempestuous sea.
