Join TIAB on Sunday, December 6th 2020, 4-6 pm ET for Mother Tongue: Performances Part Two virtual evening with works by Bianca Falco, Jorge Rojas and María Verónica San Martín.

Bianca Falco: Skin/Toxic/Terrae is an environmental performance about the toxic waste disaster in Campania, Italy, artist Bianca Falco’s native land. Falco started a dialogue with mourning mothers from the region who lost their children to cancer caused by the toxicity of the dirt, water, and air. They wish to stop the illegal toxic waste dumping in the region. Language underlines Falco’s performance, as she narrates the stories rooted in her land-which, she notes, “as an immigrant myself, I long to help and I am deeply tied to. Language is a connection to what I am truly or what I was. The same language allows these mothers to share their loss.”Skin/Toxic/Terrae became more personal as the project’s composer, Falco’s brother, who lived in the area, passed away in July 2020 from non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. Throughout the performance, different actions take place symbolizing the decay of the body due to the environment’s toxicity.

I have been wanting to prepare the best trailer I could from the 2017 premiere at La Mama E.T.C. of “Terra dei Fuochi/Land of Fires”. Time flies and I decided to stop procrastinating and prepare one today! Maybe it is not the best I could do, still I am glad I made it =). Thanks to all the wonderful donors who made the staging of the show happen. I am working on a shorter version as a solo to perform in Mexico 😉 #terradeifuochilandoffires #biancafalcochoreographer Bianca Falco #associazionenoigenitoriditutti #toxicwaste

Terra dei Fuochi is still burning!

A year ago I started rehearsing/creating the project Terra dei Fuochi/ Land of Fires. Two years ago I started working on the concept. Thanks to @lamamaetc the show has been produced and had its world premiere in nyc. It isn't enough, this is a dance, documentary theater performance aimed to share the story of the suffering mothers who lost their kids to cancer in my home region in Italy. Cancer triggered by the toxic waste that has been buried or just deoppes there and burned daily. Since I started the project things didn't get better, it is worse than ever. I am calling it as it is: a genocide. I am eager to bring the show everywhere in the world. Contact me if you, or anyone you know, is interested in having us at their festival, college, studio, museum, gallery, outdoor happening. We are ready!!! @marziacaccioppoli @bianca.falco.nyc @marcyfalco thanks as to the numerous donors and the Domenico Paulon Foundation for the support!
