“L’uomo che cammina ” (The walking man) is a landscape performance, a walking journey of about four hours for 20 spectators at a time. A figure, shadowy and elusive, strolls through the city. Through her journey, the landscape opens up and hides from the eyes of the audience, which follows at a distance, as if spying, poised between identification and detachment.
Starting from the graphic novel by Jiro Taniguchi, DOM- builds a dramaturgy of spaces to delve deeper and deeper into the tangle of the city, and let the living experience of walking become the pretext for a hand-to-hand with reality. The protagonist of the Milanese remake is the writer and playwright Antonio Moresco. Walking in his footsteps and following his figure from behind, the audience finds itself immersed in a phantasmagorical sequence plan. The spaces follow one another – a square, a station, a cathedral, a swamp, a wasteland, a motel, a swimming pool – and are interwoven with solitary writings and tales of nocturnal journeys.
After the original productions in 2018 and 2019, realised thanks to the collaboration between ZONA K and Danae festival, the project is now also offered in the English version for the international meeting (Un)Common Spaces.

DOM- is a research project born in 2013 from the collaboration between artists Leonardo Delogu and Valerio Sirna. DOM- investigates the language of performing arts, contaminating it with the militant approach of the Environmental Humanities and with the instances and imaginaries of feminist and queer ecologies. The research revolves around the relationship between bodies and territories, investigating the knot of permeability and observing how power, nature, culture and marginality interact in public space. DOM- constructs performance works, walks, gardens, texts, lectures and debates, audiovisual works, workshops, DJ sets and parties. www.casadom.org
Antonio Moresco, Italian writer [Mantua, born 1947]. After completing a difficult apprenticeship of which he gives an account in Lettere a nessuno (1997), critically documenting the difficulty of emerging from the condition of being an underground writer and rejected by the Italian publishing world, in 1993 he published the collection of short stories Clandestinità (Clandestinity), in which the themes that substantiate his work are already present, rendered in a dry and hyperrealist style that increases its dramatic impact: that of loneliness, first and foremost, traversed by a dream dimension as estrangement from the self, which is accompanied by the recurring motif of a harried search for meaning that unravels through oblique and unstable paths. The core of Moresco's oeuvre revolves around the vast work Games of Eternity, written over a period of 35 years, consisting of Gli esordi (1998), Canti del caos (published in two volumes in 2001 and 2003) and Gli increati (2015). His other works include: La cipolla (1995), Lo sbrego (2005), Scritti di viaggio, di combattimento e di sogno (2005), Merda e luce (2007), La lucina (2013), Fiaba d'amore (2014), I randagi (2014), Piccola fiaba un po' da ridere e un po' da piangere (2015), L'addio (2016), Fiabe da Antonio Moresco (2017) and, both in 2018, L'adorazione e la lotta and Il grido. Founder in 2003 of the blog Indian Nation, in 2005 he created the online and print magazine Il primo amore.
