Meeting with the artists after the performance on 03.12

Notes dated 5 March 2020 :

8 a.m.: It's a dark times, almost like the new Middle Ages. We have two popes and the plague.
11 a.m.
: The radio informs me that, in collusion with the Greek police, men belonging to Aube Dorée hunt migrants, armed and with dogs, at the border with Turkey. Every night, now, in Europe.
1 p.m.
: Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost, says the message I found in a fortune cookie. I prefer not to.
7 p.m.
: The show is still going on, Mr. DeMille, we are ready for the close-up. 11 p.m.: Fail again, fail better.
In the middle of the night
: “E allora mangia la merda” as Pasolini says in Salò and the 120 Days of Sodom, his Closing Party.

Alessandro Bernardeschi

After Happy Hour and El Pueblo unido jamàs serà vencido, Alessandro Bernardeschi and Mauro Paccagnella conclude their Trilogie de la Mémoire with Closing Party (arrivederci e grazie). This glitter-free closing ball, both absurd and ironic, invites us to think about, and witness, the last throes of the great utopias of history. The final part of a delicious triptych depicting the antics of middle age, Closing Party invokes the end and the loss of breath as a possible new beginning, where intimate memories and collective memory intertwine to form a single entity.

Possibility to buy a combi-ticket with the show Loop Affect.
