QUANDO is about the founding power of speech. It is about the earth.
There is a room in the woods where the archives breathe. The fossilised words on the pages are like stones that cut our breath.
In the hectic tranquility of the craters, which are earth houses, possibilities are excavated and ideas are carved out by the night.
We will give the transhumance back to the animals.
Over time, the rivers of fiction and reality come together in a diffuse blend of hypotheses.
Raw fragments of real life will be transformed by the camera into objects of fiction, transforming boundaries and projecting a possible future.
QUANDO is a huge installation, living and mysterious, full of events that jump off the screens of life to enter the hearts of the public.
A work in progress that seeks the land as a primordial element and as a place of existence.
The performance is itinerant and includes approximately two hours of walking, adding up to a total of about 9km on foot. During the performance the audience will also be standing on their feet. In this sense, we do not recommend it to people with reduced mobility.
Additionally, we advise you to bring comfortable shoes and warm clothing, since part of the performance takes place at night, in the mountain.
