Ecumenicam Saga

 

 

ECUMENICAM

CURRICULUM 

 

"When the end is a new beginning"

Curriculum was the first piece Miquel G. Font created under the umbrella Habemus Corpus. With a combination of different scenic, musical and technological elements, bringing them to the extreme in a stripped scenario, Curriculum presents different images on a very critical and visceral dramatic line but, at the same time, very constructive and reconciling.

Ecumenicam Curriculum is the first chapter of the ECUMENICAM saga, all based on real events about ecumenism at all levels.

 

 

ECUMENICAM

WITNESS 

 

"When mercy, joy and simplicity are the roots of the tree"

In 2015, Miquel G. Font developed a transfer method called Witness. This consisted of translating any daily gesture into a literal message, using literacy as a physical metaphor. Within this method he involved 200 people to create a tribute to the 100th anniversary of Brother Roger, founder of the Taizé community, where Miquel G. Font wrote the whole concept of Ecumenicam.

 

 

ECUMENICAM

MUST 

 

"When the two extremes touch"

Must is a literal story based on real events that deals with two people who do not have the same view over the interpretation of biblical writings. This difference does not allow them to develop a sentimental relationship, although the mutual feelings are present. With a live choir and with text and dance separately, Must is a balance between the depth of a perception problem and the humor that this can trigger.

In co-production with Stadttheater Klagenfurt, Ecumenicam Must received the award for best proposal in the Kärten region, Austria in 2012.

 

 

ECUMENICAM

SINNERS 

 

"When limits are not necessary"

SINNERS is the result of a scenic experiment where dance is in the least expression to give space to an installation of actions, live music and time management. With texts of various layers of interpretation and the ultilization of visual minimalism, the literal message masks a collection of social, religious and political criticisms bringing the reflection closer to a neutral, balanced and ecumenical point.

In co-production with Staatstheater Oldenburg, Germany, within the Fritagnacht programm, Ecumenicam Sinners is considered an installation with many open artistic branches.
