The Camino Experience: Making the Way – College of the Holy Cross
February 4, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
ATB’s first artist-in-residence CRISTINA PATO returns in February to present a new work-in-progress inspired by the Camino de Santiago and her Galician roots.
Since the middle ages, pilgrims across Europe have undertaken an arduous journey along several routes, which, like the grooves on the scallop shells carried by the pilgrims, culminate in the town of Santiago de Compostela, the site of St. James’ tomb. Today, El Camino, or The Way of St. James, invites people from all walks of life, often embarking on the journey to mark moments of transition.
MAKING THE WAY brings together the College Choir, Theatre Department faculty and students, and the Cantor Art Gallery in an exploration of the Camino in words, images and music, from medieval chant recorded in Codex Calixtinus to the tender aria “Lùa Descolorida” by Osvaldo Golijov. Drawn from the stories of local pilgrims, moments of hardship, resolve, camaraderie and mirth coalesce into a timeless narrative that invites us all on a spiritual journey along the Camino.
