Event description

Description

Can art be a way to revive the past? A means to represent memories and make present what is lost somewhere in our heads? Lola Arias has been working for more than ten years on interdisciplinary projects, using theatre, film and visual arts to explore the relationship between experience and narration, memory and fiction, personal history and a country’s history. In this lecture she will give an overview of her latest productions in order to examine how writing can be produced departing from real histories, what relationship between the self-narrator and the artist is created through this kind of writing, and, above all, what collateral effects these projects have on life and vice versa.
