a solo of many people
free•dom – a solo of many people is a solo physical theater and multimedia play created and performed by Andressa Furletti with interactive projection technology by Frieder Weiss. It was presented at the United Solo Festival in 2013 and awarded Best Multimedia Show.
Directed by Steve Cook, the play addresses those moments of resistance we all have on moments of creative inspiration. It speaks not only to artists, as the creative process can be a metaphor on how we express ourselves in life. To take this exploration to the stage, Andressa broke down her own creative process and embodied her creativity in a character called Crea. The character goes on a journey on what happens from the birth of the idea to its realization traveling from a free to dom and back to a free state of creation.
Old English freo "exempt from; not in bondage, acting of one's own will," also "noble; joyful," from Proto-Germanic *friaz "beloved; not in bondage" (source also of Old Frisian fri, Old Saxon vri, Old High German vri, German frei, Dutch vrij, Gothic freis "free"), from PIE *priy-a- "dear, beloved," from root *pri- "to love."
abstract suffix of state, from Old English dom "statute, judgment" (see doom (n.)). Originally an independent word, but already active as a suffix in Old English (as in freodom, wisdom). Cognate with German -tum (Old High German tuom). "Jurisdiction," hence "province, state, condition, quality."
