An intense love story which exalts life right up to its inevitable conclusion in Death.
“Life!” A gift to grasp with both hands.” With these words, Romeo begins to prepare for his death. Planning the days leading up to the event in great detail until, at a certain point, he “passes over the reins” of his brief existence to India, admitted to the same hospital ward, so that she can tell their story, which is also one of love.
The Indigo Room is a love story which tackles the theme of the end of life. A work inspired by a true story.
Romeo is a young violinist suffering from a serious illness, who is admitted to the Intensive Care ward of a big hospital. In this place which is suspended in time, and which he names the Indigo Room, he will discover his destiny and decide to follow it to its conclusion.
The hospital environment which to all appearances is aseptic and technological, gradually becomes familiar and almost intimate, to such an extent that he can see and perceive details which pass unnoticed in the the routine of the doctors and nurses. So although his life is coming to an end, it becomes extraordinarily rich in meaning. In the sound of his violin he rediscovers the intricate structure of matter, fashioned of vibrations, harmony between force, spirit and matter, as we are taught by Quantum Physics.
