11×11 stories (decamerona)

a collective writing&composing project. spring 2020

ogalala uses the time of lockup for a collective writing&composing project. Inspired by the “Decamerone” by Giovanni Boccaccio, a collection of 100 stories told by quarantined noblemen escaping black death in 14th century Italy, we started to create 11×11 stories, pieces of music, films, animations, pictures and more. The individual stories are look at different aspects of shutdown, quarantine, staying at home, etc. and will be put on stage whenever it is possible again.
