As the third Act off “A Meander, (com)positions with the river” by Futurefarmers, a Sound Festival for the Elephant invites visitors to explore the life force of the river and its perpetual motion as an energy that can be drawn upon to explore new forms of creation and relationships.
The festivals’ program that unfolds over the course of three days begins with a procession that carries the elephant (an elephant-shaped construction) like a sacred statue to its destination on the banks of the Isarco. The fluid, slouching and bulky architecture of the animal arrives on the banks of the river to lie down exhausted after a long journey, where a group of artists and citizens awaits with a feast of music and refreshment that can restore their tired and thirsty limbs. The time that the elephant rests by the riverside will be accompanied by narrations, installations and concerts, transforming the riverbank by via Trento into a central place of meeting and exchange.
