Sinopsi

Rromipen is the Romani people’s journey across the map and across time, from the east to the west, from their origins in India or Persia to the persecution of the Holocaust and the unjust laws that mistreated and demeaned this group until not long ago. In Rromipen, we will hear the music and words that pursue the Romani people and shape their destiny. Three musicians (a double bass, a guitar and a violin), two cantaoras (flamenco singers) and a narrator will guide us along the roads where words sound like dust or pain sometimes, while other times, they make up our collective memory and imaginary.

The show will be accompanied by images of this long journey that will allow the audience to identify scenery, colours and faces. Our aim is to create a kaleidoscope of words, music and images that captures the essence of this people. We hope that every one of us, whether we are part of this community or not, can hear our common resonances and find a part of the identity we all share, despite the attempts to distinguish between us, separate us and break us apart at the darkest moments of our history.
