Istós - a word that means “loom” in Greek - originates from the hills and mountains of Sardinia, the island that lies in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. It is inspired by the legend of the Il Cervo In Ascolto (The Listening Deer), recorded in the collection Miele Amaro (Bitter Honey) by Salvatore Cambosu, a Sardinian writer and journalist. The story features fantastic elements through which the origins of the several schools of Sardinian weaving are told, the last textile traditions still alive in EU, consisting in craftsmen, small cooperatives and labs where the pieces remained handmade.
Tragodia Theater and L’Effimero Meraviglioso Theater has been operating for over 30 years in the theatrical and education field, with particular attention to Sardinian culture identity themes.
