'I follow, I follow me'
follow: accounts for the first time a system of returns to Bologna of some of the artists we most admire, offering in-depths to their works that also disclose personal aspects. There isn’t a particular interest in autobiography but in the weaving between individual, professional and human choices; between creations and circumstances; roles and functions; between the grounded knowledge and its reformulations.
The frame of the festival shifts the expectations of the encounter with the artists. One day on stage; another day driving a passenger vehicle; and yet another among the running crew, assuring a redistribution of the roles and degrees of relation between spectator and performer.
As Bruno Latour suggests, an actor is no more than ‘what it transforms, modifies, perturbs and creates’. An actor is what an actor does.
The explorations and personal solutions of these artists are showed in their development (together they constitute the transformation, testimony, and object of a narrated spectacle): from the performance that questions the architecture of the book; to a micro-facial choreography; to the domestic filmic remake; to the re-Butoh working session with Google to incorporate a foreign tradition; to the work about summoning the invisible; to the performance of embodied music, up to an unclassifiable psalming cabaret.
No aesthetic thread. Pluriverse. F.I.S.Co. will take place in an elegant and dated theatre all’Italiana, the Theatre Duse, overturning it once, to return to its classical axis on a second moment; in two laboratory spaces of the city, Sì and DOM, managed by close independent companies; and in the compartment of the private taxis of Critical Cab: place/time of a critical reflection on the route that could lead to the places of the spectacle.
