Istós – Loom in Greek – is inspired by Salvatore Cambosu’s short story “Il Cervo In Ascolto”. Sometimes dramatic, sometimes joyful and fantastic, but also deep and contemplative, Istós tells the story of the creation of the many schools of Sardinian weaving in a fantastic way. It is a large white canvas which paints itself before the audience, as the big loom on stage does, thanks to the work of the women weavers. Original music by Rossella Faa, the graphic pen designs by Carol Rollo and the live drums by Massimo Perra. To testify the whole thing, the photos of Gigi Cabiddu Brau. If you want to see Istós in your city please contact us here.
