The residents of Campania, Italy, are facing a devastating environmental issue. Since years, due to toxic waste and carcinogenic contaminants, mothers are battling the loss of their children to cancer. As a native of Campania, this is a deeply important and emotional issue for me and as a trained choreographer, I began to work on Terra dei Fuochi / Land of Fires, a dance performance telling the stories of these mothers and hoping to help finding solutions to the problem.
