At the beginning, there was a show. Then there has been a pointed and neurotic void, a distance from people and from things to do. A virus that attacks the bodies has pitched its tents in the community of human beings, making them alien to themselves, to their most intimate and real relationships. We already knew that even the written language is a virus connecting mankind in a distorted, self-absorbed and vertical communication. For this reason we had imagined a show made up of triumphant bodies in their conflicting relationship with the words of a sublime and neurotic text, like Shakespeare’s Othello.
OtellO is the title of the show that will come. HellO is the solo we are showing today to your eyes. Observe the details of a triumphant body in its fragility, its movements and its stasis, its intensity and its colour, its desires and wonders, placing itself in front of you as the only certainty of your presence and reality. We can discuss everything else and don’t trust too much.
