Based on Anka Herbut and Bartosz Porczyk’s text 'FARINELLI' and inspired by the phenomenon of Farinelli.
'FARINELLI' is a mental installation, an attempt at recreating a portrait of the greatest eunuch of 17th century
opera. Amidst shards of identity, which appear successively on stage – figures of Father, masculinity steeped
in femininity, residual images from childhood and socialization processes – it is impossible to find the
center and all that remains is wandering around the edges of identity. 'FARINELLI' experiments with the
living tissue of the body, the actor and art.
