Young people today have only one fear: that their dreams will come true. On the misunderstanding of self-reproach. On the resistance to inhabiting and wearing one’s own identity. On androgyny and misrecognition. Towards the neutral. The more perfect the more undefined.
The first experiment for Dehors/Audela of research conceived from the life/work of Claude Cahun, writer, photographer and actress born in 1894 in Nantes, close to the surrealist movement in the 1930s, long forgotten and rediscovered only a few decades ago.
Claude Cahun was a controversial artist who was persecuted because of her homosexuality and her Jewish origins. His whole life/work, undermined by constant attacks and insults, can be defined as a continuous pursuit of a missed identity, conceived as resistance and revolt against any forced identification.

Elisa Turco Liveri and Salvatore Insana (Dehors/Audela) met in Rome in 2010, in the Atelier Meta Teatro directed by Pippo Di Marca.
The project they are part of brings together theatre, video art and performance in the sign of a continuous research in which the different artistic codes maintain their specificity and at the same time are capable of generating new forms of expression.
In the name of reciprocal interference, they start from a practice in which, if the body and the action constitute the centre of the dramaturgy, the video too has physical traits, it feeds on the body and becomes an integral part of it on stage.

Dehors / Audelà
STRATEGIA K – comportamenti che tendono a instaurare condizioni di equilibrio – un tutorial per le cure parentali sulla capacità di adattamento e sopravvivenza
Strategy K reworks the history of hysteria – a pathology once thought to be linked to problems of procreation – by linking it to the
to the “real” problem of presumed infertility of the performer on stage, creating a new physical score and drawing on the Iconographie photographique de la Salpêtrière, a visionary and obsessive reservoir of spectacular pain, a phenomenon that has reached dizzying heights today.
(duration 50 minutes) (absolute premiere)
Sunday 9 March – 4 p.m. theatre
Collettivo Cascina Barà
Images and visions of a girl looking for her mother in a foreign country, compose a performance based on the interaction between acting, live drawing and live music.
A balance that crosses theatrical action, improvisation and visual performance.
A kind of social theatre that investigates two orders of contemporary conflicts: the exclusion of the foreigner and the intergenerational relationship.
(duration 50 minutes)
Friday 14 and Saturday 15 March – 9 p.m. performance and visual arts
Tommaso Arosio/ Fedra Boscaro
APPUNTI PER UN NOVISSIMO BESTIARIO

Novissimo Bestiario is an articulated research project that intends to census the “imaginary beings” of contemporary life.
The series of performances of the Appunti is intended as a preparatory investigation for the Bestiary, focusing on the relationship between “imaginary being – human being”. The odd notes make use of video body mapping and participatory creation.

Friday 14 and Saturday 15 March – 9.30 p.m.
UMANITA’ > LIBRO I
Who’s on stage > two Turritopsis Dohrnii or immortal jellyfish able to transform their cells from a mature state back to immaturity, in other words they never die. They have always had the same beckettsian speeches, until a strange black wave brings them very close to an unexpected and improbable end.
(duration 40 minutes) (First study)
