The former one was a dance sauvage, carnival and fertility rituals, and finally ‘the’ Folia theme. Follies, folia de España and so called craziness, oddness, eccentricity, artifice, joke, capriccio. In this work, we are shipped on the ancient Stultifera Navis, the Ship of Fools. As we are boarded, we see eyes, hands and handwriting: they tell us – through pictures and sounds – the invention’s eccentricity, or the human foolishness leaving us free to cry or giddy dancing.
