RITUAL MOTHER is a contemporary art exhibition that is offered as an interdisciplinary event of art, music, dance and listening to celebrate the female figure and Mother Earth. The title Ritual Mother (from the greek θεότητα τελετουργικό) symbolizes the celebration of the Mother of Life, the Earth, in its many forms and from every point of view: the planet on which we dwell, and from which we draw sustenance, the very system of life, the spiritual entity that people identify with the deity of the Great Mother and all the ways in which relate us through the Mystery of Life and Transformation.
In this context the talk show called “Tales of Women,” with visual artist MARILENA GULLETTA (Bari, 1969 she lives and works in Cisternino, Brindisi), about the “Nomads bodies between Puglia and Mongolia – Men, cultures and architectures of solidarity” and live performance “Yogini & Enchainting cirles,” by LUISA SPAGNA & PAOLO PACCIOLLA.
