Campo Teatrale - Saggio di Canto del 9 Maggio 2016 - Sea Song (Robert Wyatt)

A theater version of Robert Wyatt´s "Sea Song"? Seems like it.

From YouTube:

"Il maestro Francesco Lori alla fine dell'esibizione dice: "eh, il coraggio dell'artista ...".
Che tradotto, significa "eh sì, ci vuole proprio un bel coraggio a fare una cosa del genere !".
E io di "bel coraggio" ne ho da vendere (della serie ”nonostante l’età, sono senza vergogna" !) :-)"

Please comment if you know more about this performance.

Unpublished interview with Robert Wyatt

Hibou, Anemone & Bear (again!) pointed me towards an unpublished 2007 ("Comicopera" time) interview with Robert Wyatt, now posted on swench.net.

"-Even though there is a lot of love, loss and war on Comicopera, I don’t find it a depressing album.

- There are a few comic moments on this record although they probably escape most people’s attention. People think I’m depressing because of the beard and the wheelchair. If they could see me as I really am in my head, which is some kind of reckless little monkey scampering around in the trees, they’d be much closer to the mark quite frankly."
