Citerone generates from a specific analysis of Euripides’ Bacchae, by isolating the choral sections of the tragedy.
The work narrates the return of Dyonisus, god of ecstasy, to a Greece disrespectful towards his divine essence. Revenge is close and is spread over the length of the play: playing the part of the scapegoats are the Theban women, first victims, then executioners, shaken trough the acts of a vengeful god.
In Citerone the bacchaes are interpreted by two performers, synthesis of the Greek chorus, who give life to a body chant in honor of Dionysus.

Cuma is a choreographic solo revolving around the figure of the sibyl, in which the various elements that belong to the archetype of the prophetess are deconstructed and pieced together to bring into existence a final message.
The sibyl, in spite of herself, chants an ending hymn, a gestural song that evolves into a cry.
All her prophecies come through the possession of the god. Such is the nature of the divine message that the sybil’s own body is torn apart by the prophecy itself.
