“A one-to-one meeting with a view of the city”.
Created in collaboration with a local school, Lookout is a one-to-one meeting between an adult, from the audience, and a child. An exchange between two people, who might not normally meet, that takes place on top of a building in Milan where together they look down on the city and imagine the future.
The conversation they share is a quiet journey through the past, present and future guided by the streets and landmarks laid out in front of them.
Through dreams of utopian architecture and possible catastrophes, hopes and fears, fashions of the future, proposed demolitions and real and imagined advances, they explore two very different versions of the city they both live in.
Lookout is an attempt to consider the big questions in a small way, to rediscover with a different gaze our Milan that we normally call home.
This version was developed through a workshop with the pupils of the third grade class of the I.C. Vittorio Locchi in Milan, who take part in the performance.
So far Lookout has been presented in: England, New Zealand, Egypt, Lithuania, Estonia, China, Shanghai, Vancouver. This version has been developed through a workshop with the fourth grade students of I.C. Vittorio Locchi in Milan who take part in the performance.
