Tina Modotti, the eyes and the hands
Short journey for two voices and a guitar
Lyrics by Alberto Prelli
Nicoletta Oscuro- voice
Matteo Sgobino- guitar and voice
Lyrics and music flow to the folds of a powerful humanity. The performance goes through the difficulties of Tina, from her childhood spent in Udine to her death in Mexico, a character whose life had been full of feelings, sense of fierceness and abandon, insecurities, efforts and weakness.
It’s a intimate journey where words and music perfectly blend to emotively depict Tina, a woman bound to her origins. The performance represents an unreleased Tina Modotti through gut-wrenching but soft melodies. It’s a journey through her life as a photographer, artist, activist and free woman, a personality characterized by an unconventional femininity far from stereotypes. An essential artistic path, sober and pure: just two voices, a guitar, lyrics and the sincere meeting point between humanity and courage.
The project was born in 2016 in Madrisio, during Woman’s day, an annual appointment to celebrate the social effort of women, organized by Madrisio’s GENIA association. Thanks to the collaboration between GENIA and FolkestDischi, this journey turned to a discographic project.
