Kilowatt Festival 2012

It’s the thought that counts

Ten years of Kilowatt, 1,000 years since the founding of Sansepolcro

An unexpected coincidence brings together Kilowatt’s first ten years with the thousand-year birthday of Sansepolcro, founded in 1012 by the pilgrims Aegidius and Arcaneus, returning from Jerusalem.

And so, in juxtaposing theater with the idea of founding a city, a play by Aristophanes, The Birds, comes to mind. There, too, are two citizens: they flee Athens to build in the clouds “a soft city, where one can lie on it like a fur coat.”

At first the two walk in the dark, madly chasing a raven and a crow (doesn’t every dream chase in the dark?). Then they meet the birds of the sky and with them create a place of happiness where all existing rules are subverted. To found a collective space is to think otherwise and elsewhere, that is, to nurture hope for a different and better society.

All this has a lot to do with the search for new languages and with the very idea of promoting a festival.

The wish for the next ten years of Kilowatt and for the future thousand years of Sansepolcro is no longer to found something, but to s-found what is already there, to deconstruct it, to make it a space where joy and beauty can be sought, in a public dimension.
