Prophecies and pronouncements in Sibyl Sessions by  Kulturscio’k live art collective at Museo della Moda di Napoli. Open dress rehearsals Thu Jun 30th, Fri July 1st, Sun July 3rd 2022 Prophecies and pronouncements is a three chapters series of texts screened and played by performers inside Sibyl Sessions, third step of a trilogy on myths directed by Alessia Siniscalchi: The distant memory of a red/green past imprinted with super 8 film and acridly sweet images from 1960’s Hollywood.

In this work, started on the basis of a collective residency in a theatre in Paris during the first week of March 2021, I write prophecies, responses and pronouncement as Instagram Stories. Beyond the artists working with Kulturscio’k on a regular basis, I invited to join german artist Julia Liedel to interact with my writing. All pictures : © Roberto Di Mola.
