QUADRO I

The inquiry field is about addiction and the relationship of the body with the overcharge of informations. Hikikomori is the name of one of the many addictions of our contemporary society: the addiction of to much informations with the pathological consequence of self isolation and confinement.

Inspired by a scientist, Bruce Alexander, that in the 70' create the RAT PARK as a contest to experiment drugs addiction on rats: not a simple cage but a confined space rich of different informations, activities, food, drugs and a social contest for interaction.

In 2016 Sara and Nuvola conceived the HUMAN PARK, a performative experiment to test informations addiction on humans, with the aim to show how scientific strategies are questionable and how humans are squized in cages maded by symbols and stereotypes created by the ones who have the power to manipulate informations. A cage, in a cage, in a cage...

The performance is an uncommon hybrid between “cinema live” and performance, in which the choreography is structured around functional rather than aesthetic physical attitudes and gestures, revealing a body shaped by and reflecting on its environmental, cultural and social conditioning.

Live filmed sequences fragment reality, highlight the uselessness of a single point of view, augment and complete the expressiveness of the performing bodies that become landscape in the service of the camera.

Des femmes et des hommes

Des destins, réunis pour avancer.

A chacun sa différence, à chacun sa vérité.

La vérité du plus fort est toujours la meilleure.

1/1

L'idée de ce projet initié au Bénin, est le besoin explosif d'exprimer nos sentiments et impressions. Le propos du film réside dans l'absurdité et la nécessité d'atteindre l'unité pour le genre humain, ainsi que dans la quasi-impossible, urgente mais toujours terrible tâche d'essayer de se comprendre les uns les autres. Le message sous-jacent est un appel à aller voir au delà de l'illusion des relations humaines dans lesquelles la vérité et le pouvoir sont trop souvent définis selon un seul point de vue.

This work recounts one of the possible versions of the story of the God Money. Sent to Earth to facilitate exchanges among human beings, Money takes pleasure in playing with their weaknesses and, taking control of their will, he will become increasingly more powerful...

Using an ironic and symbolic language, this story leads us into an imaginary but familiar universe. The piece makes use of the allegorical power of myth to celebrate humanity, without illusions, without shame, recognizing that human been can be as brilliant and sensitive as mean and vulgar.
