Prophecies and pronouncements in Sibyl Sessions. Following Medea’s Visions and Oreste will be back, the Kulturscio’k Live Art Collective is bringing Sibyl Sessions to Parco Archeologico di Cuma, Festival Antro. The final work in a trilogy of contemporary, socially-commentating adaptations from Greek mythology, is a mixed media exploration of womanhood and time, mingling a romantic nostalgia for the past with dystopian omens for the future. More than performance, it incorporates film, photography, projections, and live music to create a distinctly unique aural and visual experience. Director and performer Alessia Siniscalchi orchestrates Sibyl Sessions with a team of talented artists, among them musician Phil St. George, visual artist Giovanni Ambrosio, and lighting designer Benjamin Sillon whose projector-helmet adds a new dimension of symbolic beauty to the piece. Radical technological inventions, exacerbated and extreme, become a pretext to tell the present, the past, and the future–the story of the oracle. Giovanni Ambrosio features a four parts installation handled by Benjamin, the text based work Prophecies and pronouncements

A completely virtual, dystopian future where we are prisoners of a technological helmet, self-obsession and individualism, disrupting everything we try to remember about ourselves.     In first chapter, Out of date prophecies, I re-use and slightly re-write letters from CEOS and general marketing texts stating how important is, after George Floyd death, to promote human rights and to prevent injustice.   In the second chapter, following the flow of guru’s, handcrafted experts, theorists with any scientific culture which are now populating our connectivity based society, I offer mundane and non sibylline pronouncements: Killing kills.   The third chapter is a series of anxiolytic prophecies coming form my work Submit!, analysing the marketing literature aiming to intercept a huge reservoir of potential buyers: artists.
