Festa Farina e Forca

Festa Farina e Forca

Festa Farina e Forca was a site-specific promenade piece in and around a group of old aircraft hangars in Palermo’s Cantieri Culturali alla Zisa, created and directed by rooftop directors Ivor Houlker and Michelle Li, with local musicians/performers. The performance was based on the structure of the local feast of Santa Rosalia, referencing local culture and events, before finally asking what the audience would do for their city. The performance ended in a large outdoor banquet for audience and cast to eat and talk together.
