A Faia de Ponto

A FAIA DE PONTO. The King of GaliciaIn the Arthurian forest of Brocelianda, in Paimpont (Brittany), we can still see the beech tree of Ponto today. One legend says that it was Pontus, le Roi de la Galice, who planted this tree, another says that the tree is Pontus himself, converted after his death. Starting from the late 14th century French medieval romance Ponthus et la belle Sidonie, Alba Cid and Estevo Creus in dialogue with the improvising musician Pablo Castaño undertake an original poetic-musical re-reading that, deconstructing and branching the mythical tale, shakes the traditional visions of the hero and brings the cultural background of the Arthurian world to the present, reminding us of the vitality of the Kingdom of Galicia as a reference in medieval Europe.
