Atlas of transitions
June 18 at 10:17 am
Yesterday, 17th June, during the first international festival organised by ERT - Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondazione for #atlasoftransitions - Right to the City • Atlas of Transitions Biennale, 15-24 June, Bologna - Cantieri Meticci has presented 'Autostrada del Sud. Primo studio per un ingorgo con spettatori', a travelling performance on cars, freely based on the homonym short story written by Julio Cortazar. --> 36 cars. 36 actors. 144 spectators. In any car one actor, while the spectators, without being allowed to move, stay together in the middle of an urban traffic jam where more than one time exists. Intimate. Historical. Present. Autostrada del Sud proposes to look again at that ‘necessary chaos’ evoked by Julio Cortazar in his novel Rayuela. Il gioco del mondo, where the ‘complicit reader’ is invited to make their own reading journey by choosing the sequence in which they read the book chapters. Likewise, spectators can participate in the performance here on their own car or just as passengers of someone else’s car. Through the intimate sharing of a car-skull, they will make experience of block as an infinite game for possibilities, a pluriversum in which cars become the passage through another world. --> The show will be performed for the second time on the 23rd June. --> Here below, pictures from the backstage by @alicevacondiophotographer --> Download the full programme of the festival: https://bit.ly/2K3UD24 and follow @atlasoftransitionsitalia for updates about all the events that will be running up to Sunday 24th June.
