A project that combines theater and digital using the potential of innovative tools to extend the possibilities of theater play and the usability of theatrical themes. The subject is taken from Aeschylus' Oresteia from the exceptional translation that Pier Paolo Pasolini made of it. The Oresteia is the work of points of view starting from that of the gods observing from above, to that of the chorus observing from a distance, to that of the characters immersed in the tragedy. The founding idea of the project is to expand the question of the different points of view posed by the text through a 360-degree projection by allowing the viewer the opportunity to look around, indeed to choose his or her own point of view, to choose what to look at. Tragic Drone, which on this occasion is presented in studio form through a projection with live interventions, is designed to be installed in large environments with immersive projections or enjoyed with VR viewers. Fragments and glimpses of justice, family, war, and returns captured by flying from landscape to landscape (cities, suburbs, waterscapes, fields) and following the journey of Orestes as he returns home questioning the events that happened and his own actions.
