In recent years, has pursued an enquiry into, a mental space where the and the evoke the construction of. Imagines and puts in place not to adapt herself to.

Une Macchina di Santa Rosa for Brussels Midi and Anderlect (with Jochen Dehn)

Why does a moving never ends in a big party, since we left one life to (re) start another? And how to have a party without leaving traces? How to set up a place without adding or removing, cleaning? Why not get together and do a demonstration for nothing. Or … for poetry…  or for love … or lack of love, since we get there. (How) Create a mass hysteria? How to trigger an epidemic of fake laugh? Or … what would happen or what music would appear if everybody would open their window, slamming their pans.

At Viterbo, a small town near Rome, September 3 of each year is devoted to the wandering of a tower, carried by 120 people, transported from a city gate to another through the downtown. During the week of Sept. 26, we propose to develop tools to understand the place we live, since we, and potential partners, are here. It will be collective, how to create, to live together. Parties, hurry up’s, caceroladas. How to sabotage the waves of life … a sabotage that interrupts that rhythm. About the potential of such a stop, such a traffic jam. And, once there, turn it into a party, in a situation. With people, maybe.
