Theatre troupe KVADRIFONS
Published videos of reading tales from Giovanni Boccaccio's book "The Decamaron"
Location: Latvia, Riga
“We want our videos to enable creative co-participation”
It’s story time! Starting on 16 March, each day the theatre company KVADRIFRONS has been publishing a video in which various people read short stories out loud. The stories all come from Giovanni Boccaccio’s “The Decamaron” – a classic of Italian literature containing 100 tales told in the context of the Black Death plague. “We find these stories to be very relevant to the situation we are in today. Plus, this initiative creates a unifying feeling of participation and presence”, says a member of the theatre company. While the video sessions were completed in May, the readings are still available on the KVADRIFRONS Facebook, Youtube, and Spotify pages.
