(la casa, el desengaño)
Duchamp, dust and ways out in 3 acts:
Act I. Ferdinando Mazzitelli
Act II. Maria Pecchioli
Act III. Le pettole e co.
The seventh date sees the succession of two performance monologues by Ferdinando Mazzitelli and Maria Pecchioli. Two different voices, but both outside that homogenizing chorus of productive cultural models.
Act I: H 18.30 ”The Disappearance of Duchamp “ by Ferdinando Mazzitelli, performed by Giorgio Ganzerli.
A tale that weaves from 1920 to the present day, reveals the true life of Duchamp, through happenings and twists and turns that have been concealed and silenced until today; these facts overturn “history” as we know it. In parallel and to honor the protagonist, reflections, thoughts related to the theme of form in the work of art will be expressed. In order to understand the connection between the two levels, three references will be presented, three finds that are really within the story and symbolize a forgotten or advanced quintessence. The reading-performance, in fact, is the first episode of a series that is part of the “Index of Advanced Forms” through which the author aims to search for tools, methods and opportunities to resist the domination of hyper productivity and to try to escape the homogenization dictated by cultural and intellectual models in the service of capital and the economy.
Act II: H 7:30 p.m. ”SaDomestica “ by Maria Pecchioli.
SaDomestica is the Zen practice related to household cleaning a sequential body of actions that accompanies daily living. Taking to heart the balance of soul and place, SaDomestica does not need to introduce more dirt into the world. Maria Pecchioli gives us a practical demonstration and introduces us to this Via Maestra for revolutionarily unproductive action.
Act III: 8:30 p.m. ***The pettole and co.
Frying of soft bread dough balls according to a Lucanian recipe, accompanied by salumi and wine.
