Stuporosa takes as a reference the essay ‘Morte e pianto rituale’ by Ernesto De Martino to carry out a choreographic research on the so-called ‘crying without a soul’, on the figure of the lamenter. The title of the project itself is a quote from De Martino: ‘ebetudine’ is ‘stuporosa’, the state of catatonia that can appear in an individual attempt to overcome grief for the loss of a loved one.

A reflection on the act of crying, on the state of mourning and on the importance of a funeral ritual – whether religious or secular – to give meaning to death.
