PIAZZA DELLA SOLITUDINE
7 - 8 May 2022
h 6.30 and 19.00
ATTENTION: EVENING DEPARTURE TIME HAS BENNE BROUGHT FORWARD TO 19.00
– SECTION OUT OF MILAN –
It is a sound path with headphones that will take place in the town of Baranzate, a group walk, an experience at the same time personal and shared inhabited by voices, sounds, literary fragments and testimonies around the theme of loneliness. The performance crosses significant places in the city that are identified in the days leading up to it, thanks to the study of the topography and history of the city and (when possible) thanks to encounters with local people. Two figures accompany the public: the first is a point of reference, guiding the route; the other crosses the space, directs the gaze, gets lost, plays with the limit. The route follows the sun and its light.
The performance takes place at dawn and/or at dusk: at dawn the city wakes up, a few people inhabit it with their silent and solitary presence; at dusk, on the other hand, it can swarm with passers-by and within this collectivity a sense of solitude can arise, willingly or unwillingly. The reality of the landscape becomes part of the performance, resonates with the words in the headphones and allows the unexpected to manifest itself and become a story. One walks, at the same time, alone and in company to find oneself at the end in a temporary square and express a desire.
Baranzate was chosen by the collective because of the intense social activities born in the area over the years, and it is also a place of affection and growth for one of the members of the collective.
in collaboration with Associazione Quarantasettezeroquattro in Gorizia
