BAD_W.H.0R,E_D,S.....................................

PERFORMANCE BY THE GROSSI MAGLIONI MAGIC DUO
BETWEEN CATEGORIES: GENDER / RANDOM PERFORMANCE

BAD_W.H.0R,E_D,S is a scurrilous - rambling - degenerated erotic speech
two women challenge each other to the sound of vulgarity - a barrage of insults sex and sexist motivated
for viewers it is an opportunity to participate - in any possible meanings - in a challenging game
everything by linguistic tricks......


the grossi maglioni magic duo was founded in 2006
by searching a performance form that elaborates an ironic and often provocative language - the duo critiques and deconstructs the canonical represention of the performer as sexual subject of performance art - which is supposed to create expectations by the audience - and of the art system - ordered and regulated by the market rules
the research on the nature of performance is articulated through the study of the limits of communicative/ spectacular/ experimental research on the body - by investigating the persona of: the illusionist - the assistant - the hostess - the spiritualist - the medium - the pin up - the suffragette - the bozark

simon hitziger (1980) - lives and works in nancy
simon hitziger uses the exhibition space as a support for work - he adapts forms - objects or parts of architecture to take them out of their original context or to modify the sense of it
his reflexion is based on various concepts such as transition or evolution - as they can be physical or mental the artist sensitivity develops in the industrial world and urban spaces of transition - like building sites in construction or demolition - in which he finds his aesthetic reference marks parallel to his production of sculptures and installations - simon hitziger built a pictorial universe composed by drawings and photographs he connects voyages and dreams by proposing means of transport means with their fall and hang points

jean-françois robardet (1980) - works where he lives
in his practice - robardet addresses themes such as unity and anarchy - nature - place of human into nature - autonomy and wait - absence - loneliness and relationship - by using every medium without preference and combining several media within one and/or several systems as part of in-site installations or autonomous object - each piece branches off with the shape of a family tree - generated in different times and locations - such as an invisible anatomy establishing networks and bonds between collectors each exhibition is an occasion to create a new piece and each creation is shown only once - then -depending on the situation - it can be documented - acquired - transformed or destroyedsince 2007 - he develops a project based on scientific aspects - eliminating superstitious and magical issues
he concurrently develops his practice as a curator

PERFORMANCE BY OXO..............................
BETWEEN CATEGORIES: GENDER / RANDOM PERFORMANCE

the oxo's action will sound out sensory feedback of the webcam world - playing on the state passages that inevitably it entails

at the mouth of the studio caronte oxo was born
do not tell in oxo: he moves and creates - he transforms everything into sound and the sound designs masks
oxo collects environment informations and elaborates its contents - oxo gives to the context an illusion of possible changes
oxo is fluid that seeps into the cracks of our personality and breaks into the daily like a flood
the group is a free combination of creative people
every oxo performance is different from the previous - it is like a work to re/do – re/design
the actions are strokes of color: sounds and bodies in a continuous circular motion from inside to outside - between the analog and digital
the search of rejected materials that generate sound - are fundamental contents of oxian a-poetic
who sees oxo breathe oxo - who touches oxo becomes oxo - who photographer oxo is oxo

DE HUMANI CORPORIS VOX FABRICA – LEZIONE D’ANATOMIA.........................
PERFORMANCE BY GRUPPO ZËRI-T................
CATEGORY: THEATER PERFORMANCE..............

a lecturer explains to the audience the human speech processes - but during the exposition something in his diction gets stuck: illogical jump - babble and isolated groups of phonemes instead of fowing words and meaningful speech
de humani corporis vox fabrica - lezione d’anatomia is the second stage of a inorganic vocal research - started in 2008 with the performance 'ftiç' ('no entertainment at all!' by francesco ventrella and 1:1 project)
unlike the previous performance that was more choral and abstract - in this case the action is for solo voice and audio tool
the project wants to follow two parallel paths: to illustrate the continuity between a normal faculty of speech and a psycho-physical aphasic disorder - show the continuity between speech and no-mean sound
performer: alba droboniku (lecturer) - gabriele culurgioni - deborah di giacomo - valerio marini (medical) - a special thanks to ada pizzolorusso

the gruppo zëri-t is a theater group founded in 2003
its research investigates the double possibility of mutual correspondence between voice and image or their radical and extreme dissonance - towards a phonic-linguistic and visual defagration of the sense and meaning
the group produces performances - shows and video soundtracks
past performances: 'fram(molly)menti(bloom)' - 2004; 'performance-kamikaze no. 1 - homage to marius schneider'; 'ftiç' - 2007
shows: 'bloomenò' 2007 - video soundtracks: 'coup' 2009 - collaborations with the grossi maglioni magic duo: '# 2 interference' 2008; '# 4 do spirits return?' 2009
