Twenty years have passed since the death of KURT COBAIN.
Although times have changed,
THE COBAIN SCREAM is now more relevant than ever.
A scream which represents the anxiety and worries of an apathetic and apparently distant and indifferent generation…sarcastic and harsh and at the same time alive and moving…full of existential melancholy and swallowed up by a “senseless emptiness”, by values turned upside down and distorted models generated by a society, often a “bad teacher” that confuses and deceives you.
Moved by an urgency and by the desire to give a voice to today’s teenage world, we wanted to shout ourselves…
together with them and for them…
With respect and humility, we felt the need to reinterpret NIRVANA’s song entitled “SCHOOL”…
a “means” to give a voice to all those intense, extreme and contradictory moods which often hold us hostage, such as insecurity and arrogance, fragility and anger, rebellion and fear, egocentricity and the need for love which binds us together.
We are honored and moved by the inspiration which surrounded us and let us describe the essence of this song in a raw and evocative vision, 25 years after it was first released, dedicated to a world of young people…a world too often misunderstood and shocking.
SCHOOL…for those teenagers who would like to scream, but who most of the time don’t have the force to do so or who are convinced their scream would fall in silence, unheard…Where “the silence” and “the misunderstanding” create a seemingly immense “distance”…
SCHOOL… a “silent shout”, at times desperate, made up of disenchanted, provocative, aggressive and self-destructive behaviors…the only language known to those who do not know how to ask for help.
SCHOOL…a trip to the depths of the soul of adolescents looking to discover themselves and their own identity…An identity in continual “becoming”, made up of needs… discomforts… dreams… danger… deceits… illusions… uneasiness… fears and aspirations…
Times have changed…but “THE COBAIN SCREAM” is now more relevant than ever…and SCHOOL has become our “Silent Shout”… liberating… a spark in the shadows…
