DELFI (studio per suono, voce, video e buio) / DELPHI (study for sound, voice, video and darkness)
Parma, Festival Teatro 2, 1990
- Data Sheet
Emptiness, silence, but above all, pitch black. The scene has gone dark, making it impossible to make anything out. Two screens are connected to two infrared cameras which move like eyes, and their gaze guides the spectator through the darkness, following the actor’s every move.
The cameras try to make sense of a space which is full of statues who are waiting to return to a new level of perception, to a new form of sensitivity. It is a drama that seeks clarity and the essential. It is an attempt to place the profane aspects of technology within the confines of poetry.
