BASTIANCONTRARIE (Rebellious Women)
Stories of liberated and rebellious women
Recital for two voices
with Angelo Floramo and Claudia Grimaz
Bastiancontrarie is a gallery of stubborn and rebellious women who, historically, in legend and literature, liberated their femininity through their ideas, dreams, hopes and yearning for freedom.
Peasants, philosophers, warriors, witches, poets and prophets, but also normal women, young and old, taking part in the day-to-day battle against the prejudice and arrogance of a world in which, today more than ever, they feel the need to be heard and understood from their viewpoint.
Angelo Floramo was born in Udine in 1966; he graduated in Medieval Latin Philology and is a Professor of Medieval History. He teaches in the city's upper high school, and acts as cultural consultant and scientific director of the Guarneriana Library in San Daniele del Friuli.
He has published numerous essays and specialist articles, and is a contributor to many Italian and international periodicals.
Floramo has published a number of works, including Balkan Circus (Ediciclo, 2013), Guarneriana segreta (Bottega Errante Edizioni, 2015), L’osteria dei passi perduti (Bottega Errante Edizioni, 2017), Forse non tutti sanno che in Friuli… (Newton Compton, 2017), La veglia di Ljuba (Bottega Errante Edizioni, 2018) and Storie segrete della storia del Friuli (Newton Compton, 2018).
Soprano and actress Claudia Grimaz graduated in singing at the Jacopo Tomadini Conservatory in Udine. Claudia has taken part in numerous theatre performances, both commedia dell’arte and musical, and also began to work and study folk singing under Giovanna Marini.
