Anna Rispoli / Martina Angelotti (IT)
A CERTAIN VALUE
20 - 21 July 2021
Launched as a research project on sharing and mutualized practices, A Certain Value immerses itself in the radical, artistic and human experiences of four European collectives of different practices: a group of inmates in the women’s prison, families of migrants and unaccompanied minors living in an occupied building, art who share a single bank account, eco-activist children from public schools or home schooling projects, worried about the fate of the planet… All these new voices collected in Rennes, Marseille, Brussels or Budapest have given birth to a hybrid form, where real conversations are edited into a fictional dialogue between the different collectives, inviting the public to slip into the shoes of the protagonists in a interactive script.
By reading out loud the protagonists of A Certain Value, the audience will have the opportunity to hear the plurality of forms that mutual aid can take, to ask themselves key questions about sharing and possibly to borrow the point for an evening of view of this “unknown” who lives the urgency to build a radical alternative to individualistic solitude, or this other that reinvents the powerful meaning of sharing every day.
ACV was created by Anna Rispoli, an artist and activist, and Martina Angelotti, an art curator, then converted into a dramaturgical text with the help of Celine Estenne, an author and performer.
The performance lands in Milan thanks to the design relationship between ZONA K and BASE Milano.
