Theater 19/20

Speak Listen Watch Make

5 OCT 2019, H. 19:00

Duration: 120’ (with intermission)

In line with its interdisciplinary mission, Triennale Milano Teatro opens the new season with the launch of Parla Ascolta Guarda Fai(‘Speak Listen Watch Make’), a unique project hosted by Triennale Milano until early 2020, conceived in collaboration with two members of its artistic committee: Davide Giannella and Massimo Torrigiani (Fantom). The programme will comprise two projects employing different expressive modes. Francesco Cavaliere, performer, musician and visual artist, will present a cycle of sound stories personifying the lives of a range of animals: a preview of his new work Zoomachia Disc. This will be followed by Time-blind, an audio-visual performance collaboratively created by the composer Caterina Barbieri and the visual artist Ruben Spini, staged in Italian premiere. In the 30-minute interval between the two works, the the Caffè in Triennale will remain open: an invitation to the audience to come together and engage in conversation. 

Based between Milan and New York, Fantom is a not-for-profit organisation committed to exploring the trajectories between photography, sound and visual art. It was founded in 2009 by Selva Barni, with the publication of a quarterly and of a series of photobooks. In 2012 the magazine was suspended as the organisation evolved into a collective engaged in the concept and realisation of editorial projects, exhibitions and records. These projects have included exhibitions, installations and performances with Batia Suter, Brice Dellsperger, Mario Milizia, Maurizio Anzeri, Raed Yassin, Ruth van Beek, Shilpa Gupta, Soundwalk Collective, Taisuke Koyama and Yang Fudong, and the programme Rencontres Internationales de la Photo de Fès (Morocco, 2014). From 2015 to 2017, Fantom has curated the inaugural programme of Milan’s Galleria Viasaterna Milano, with solo exhibitions by Guido Guidi, Lorenzo Vitturi, Mario Milizia, Takashi Homma and Theo Drebbel, and a series of double and collective shows, including 2016: Sulla nuova fotografia italiana. From 2016 and 2018, Fantom has directed a series of exhibitions at Palazzo Reale commissioned by the City of Milan and produced by Alcantara: Ho visto un reCodice di avviamento fantasticoNove viaggi nel tempo. In the summer of 2018, it stagedLa Sindrome di Ulisse by Soundwalk Collective in the former Oratorio di Santa Maria del Sabato, one of the projects in the official side-programme of the Biennale Manifesta 12 in Palermo; the work was later staged at the Petit Palais of Tunisis’ Bardo National Museum and at Beit Beirut Museum. In 2018, Fantom has co-curated the content and production of Salento Moderno. Inventario di abitazioni private nel sud della Puglia, a book published by Humboldt Books in January 2019. Since 2019, it has curated the section on Photography and Moving Images for Arte Fiera Bologna. Fantom’s activities are coordinated by Selva Barni, Bruno Biasiucci, Didier Falzone, Rocco Lanzavecchia, Ilaria Speri, Massimo Torrigiani and Francesco Zanot.

Davide Giannella is an independent curator. His research focuses on the possible relationships between the art system and the different fields of contemporary culture (cinema, architecture, design, music) and on the translation and adaptation of artistic projects and themes to different contexts and platforms. He has worked both for public institutions such as Triennale di Milano (Junkbuilding, 2008, group exhibition), Museo Marino Marini (Glaucocamaleo, 2014, Luca Trevisani), Milan’s PAC (GLITCH. Interferenze tra Arte e Cinema, 2014, group exhibition) and for private galleries and independent venues such as Ramiken Cruicible (NY, Surfing With Satoshi, 2013, Alterazioni Video) or Le Dictateur (UV-Ultraviolento, 2012, group exhibition). From 2010 to 2014 he conceived and curated for the Milan Film Festival verniXage, an exhibition dedicated to the liminal zone of Art Cinema, working with national and international artists. In 2016 he was Guest Curator of the Milan Design Film Festival and curated the exhibition Filter. Since 2016 he has curated the programme of the exhibition space MEGA in Milan, working with artists of the likes of Diego Perrone, Andrea Sala, Gianni Pettena, Nathalie Du Pasquieur, Ramak Fazel, Christodoulos Panayiotou, among others. He curates the collection Paper Space for the publisher Rawraw. Since 2017 he has been a member of the artistic committee of Triennale Milano Teatro. In 2018 he curated the exhibition and project Incompiuto. La Nascita di Uno Stile by Alterazioni Video in the context of Manifesta 12 in Palermo. He was course leader and associate lecturer in Arti Patrimoni e Mercati at IULM University (2009 - 2013). Currently, he lectures at NABA in Milan and collaborates with the main sector magazines.
