L’art de conserver la santé

“The whole school of Salerno wrote for the English king:
If you want to be healthy, if you want to remain sound,
Take away your heavy cares, and refrain from anger,
Be sparing of undiluted wine, eat little, get up
After eating fine food, avoid afternoon naps,
Do not retain your urine nor tightly compress your anus.
Do these things well, and you shall live along time.”

L’art de conserver la santé is an artistic study of Regimen Sanitatis Salernitanum - A Salernitan Regimen of Health. This 13th century anonymous text consists in a series of recommendations on how to stay in good health: what to use frequently and what to avoid.
In our interpretation of Regimen Sanitatis Salernitanum, we are three performers, singing, dancing and speaking. We bring back to life what our ancestors would have done to stay healthy and at the same time question our relationship to the past and what we see as long forgotten.

L’art de conserver la santé is hybrid project that exists in different formats: a stage version and site-specific version that can tailored to context (walks, guided tour, etc.)
