A female odyssey. A woman travels from one Mediterranean island to another in search of a loved one who has disappeared. A phantom accompanies her in a dance which brings her closer to an awareness of a definitive absence.

Based on the short story Letter in the Wind from Si sta facendo sempre più tardi (It is getting later and later), a novel in the form of letters by Antonio Tabucchi.

...Roberta Carreri, following the tracings in the air of the Mater’s wand, has given my letters voice again. She has penetrated the opaque mirror of the writing. I see her: she is leaping inside a circle of gestures and words. It is the magical circle of Alice, who has decided to prolong her journey beyond Wonderland in order to become Ariadne. It is a trip through a blind labyrinth, behind the thread of the days of her life, searching for the sound that has been the cause of her suffering – the dull bellowing of the Minataur.
Jan Ferslev suggests, with the sound of a nineteenth century mandolin purchased in a little Neopolitan shop, that the doleful notes of a woman’s voice are also his own – those of an elegant Theseus in a panama hat and a linen suit – because betrayal can also provoke suffering in the betrayer…”

Extract from a text by Antonio Tabucchi: “The Voice, The Body. Reflections after a rehearsal of SALT”.
