Noise in the Waters

“Noise in the Waters” (Rumore di acque) depicts a soul of the underworld, clad in a general’s uniform, who has been charged with making a census of the dead at the bottom of the sea, bringing order to a desperate state of bookkeeping.  We find him on a small volcanic islet, a gateway to the kingdom of the dead, whose “policy of welcome” is opposed to the driving away of the migrants who landed there.  He works for the Ministro dell’ Inferno, a play on words for Ministro dell’ Interno.  His job is overwhelming and leads to number games of many kinds, designed to make the audience indignant to his indifference.  Speaking in a gravelly, distorted voice, he occasionally gives faces to the faceless dead lost, telling sardonic stories of refugees named Sakinah, Yusuf, little Jean-Baptiste and Jasmine. They came from Libya and many small villages throughout the Sahara, but their journeys ended in the Strait of Sicily, where the Mediterranean tightens between that island and Tunisia.  His anger is not toward the politics that led them to their cold graves, but toward the fish–pigs of the sea–who render them faceless and make his job hard.  There is a poignant sonic blend as his dramatic, ironic, grotesque utterances are interwoven with poetic and lyrical music by Enzo and Lorenzo Mancuso (voice, harmonium, baglama, Turkish flute and marimba).  These two brothers, originally from the Sicilian province of Caltanissetta, are widely published in Europe and contributed sound tracks for the movie “The Talented Mr. Ripley” by Anthony Minghella.  In this “oratorio for the sacrificed,” they intermingle the ancient Sicilian tradition with other Mediterranean sounds.

Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 PM, Sundays at 2:30 PM.

$18 general admission, $13 seniors and students. Ten $10 tickets will be available to every performance on a first-come, first-served basis.
