‘Mona Lisa in Delirium Totus’
‘Mona Lisa in Delirium Totus’. – “The creation, life, death and triumphal return of a cultural monster.”
Freely inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
You can subject an “icon” to high-brow hell and low culture but if the original is worthy of the label, you leave it strengthened and unharmed.
An ironic discourse on the lack of, and the search for, an identity in the space made by an excess of the same.
The piece traces (more ore less) the story of high and popular art.
- ————————‘The Little Withinsight House’
Original Title: Tectus ad Spectum.
A four-sided structure. An installation.A ‘hut’ containing a live performance in interaction with a hand-made film.
Miniatures are projected as human size.
There are flames, puppets, drawings, tears (rips), etc and the actor himself appears filmed in miniature or in gigantic proportions in interaction with his live self.The performance is viewed through holes in three of the hut’s walls.
Each viewing hole is in the centre of a small autobiographical or historical element (a photograph, a letter, an object or a toy) specific to the performer.
The film and its accompanying live interaction trace autobiographical themes.
‘Sweet Distortion’ … the improbable man.
Original Title: ‘Dolce Stoltezza’
Delicate, bendy, silly, poetic on the spot dancing and ‘contortion’.
(… redeveloping as cabaret act and theatre show)
