THE WALKING MAN
from 11 to 20 October 2019
Art is about making everything false and seeming true.
Art is to make everything true and seem false.

After the great success of the last season, the extraordinary operation of DOM- returns, which, starting from the graphic novel by Jiro Taniguchi, builds a dramaturgy of spaces in which to let explode the border between centre and suburbs, between urban and third landscape, between human and non-human.
A man, the writer and playwright Antonio Moresco, walks through the city. Through his journey, the landscape opens up and hides from the eyes of the public, who follow him at a distance, as if to spy on him, poised between identification and detachment.
The spaces follow one another as in an uninterrupted sequence – a square, a station, a cathedral, an uncultivated field, a swamp, a public swimming pool, a motel. The living experience of walking becomes the pretext for a hand-to-hand encounter with reality.

It investigates the language of the performing arts, with particular attention to the relationship between body and landscape, and is committed to the transmission of peculiar practices of dwelling, linked to the space and time of artistic creation. DOM- builds performance events, seminars, walks, writings, gardens, installations, videos, photographic reportages.
Antonio Moresco, Italian writer [Mantua, born 1947]. After completing a difficult apprenticeship, which he recounts in Letters to No One (1997), critically documenting the difficulty of emerging from the condition of being a writer.
After completing a difficult apprenticeship, which he describes in Lettere a nessuno (1997), critically documenting the difficulty of emerging from the condition of being an underground writer rejected by the Italian publishing world, in 1993 he published the collection of short stories Clandestinità (Clandestinity), in which the themes that underpin his work are already present, rendered in a dry and hyper-realistic style that increases its dramatic impact: loneliness, first and foremost, crossed by a dimension of dreaming as estrangement from the self, which is accompanied by the recurring motif of a frantic search for meaning that unravels through oblique and unstable paths. The fulcrum of Moresco’s work revolves around the vast work Giochi dell’eternità (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 Nazione indiana, in 2005 he created the online and print magazine Il primo amore.
