Enciclopedia is a work of erudition that is composed while travelling. It collects people’s definitions for what is around them: things like “house” or “nail” or “dog”. Objects of common appearance. From those words, she composes a well-rounded portrait. Of what? Of today’s man, told through the words he dedicates to the small things that make up his world.
It is a contemporary work, made with old-fashioned manners: it travels from town to town, through theatre festivals and village festivals, touching on different realities in search of a new collaboration. At the end of each local survey, a restitution performance is offered, in which the interviewers resume their costume as artists to read the definitions found and present them to everyone.
The Encyclopaedia grows following the alphabet, in a journey that is both physical and literary. Throughout 2014, it will visit different cities and places, gradually expanding the boundaries of a potentially infinite work, along with the number of its participants.
Where? in the streets of the ISOLA district
