“Z” completes, in a sort of trilogy, an investigation on vision and illusion, daily and unreal, artificiality and distortion, started with performance “A sudden, unexpected faint” (2000) and continued with “Live*” (2002).
The three performances created, change radically in format and aesthetic form, but all take place in a visual and acoustic environment where reality and its electronic/virtual reproduction, are never well outlined, but interact with each other, in complex and ever varied relations.
The use of the video, in tight dialog with music originally composed, has been central elements of the three works.
“Hole”’s theme has been the starting point of “Z”, the hint for moving our emotional and physical associations.
We are usually orientated to perceive reality by solid things, objects. The holes push us to look at reality in the sense of transparency and absence. To look throughout the holes is a metaphor of a radical change of prospective.
“Z” is a child room, as an urban suburb, as a sitcom set, unreal.
