Speak Listen Watch Make
Running until February 2020, Speak Listen Look Act includes all manner of meetings, installations, performances, talks, screenings, workshops and projects with the direct involvement of the public and the premises of Triennale.
Caterina Barbieri/Ruben Spini e Francesco Cavaliere
Time-blind e Zoo Machia Disc
For the opening evening, two projects employing different expressive modes will be presented on the stage of Triennale Milano Teatro. Francesco Cavaliere, performer, musician and visual artist, will present a preview of his new work Zoo Machia Disc, a cycle of sound stories combining installative and choreographic elements. This will be followed by the audio-visual performance Time-blind, collaboratively created by the composer Caterina Barbieri and the visual artist Ruben Spini.
With Ruggge, children and adults will be guided in the construction of four giant puppets, each inspired by the themes of the event: he speaks (mouths, jaws, teeth and lips), listens (ears, antennae and trumpets), looks (eyes, glasses, telescopes, eagles and hawks), do you (big hand, tentacles and bizarre prostheses).
The Drinchendrò laboratories will be dedicated to the creation of furnishings that will animate the parade: cloaks and flags (Mondays), wearable sound accessories and megaphones developed with clothing and salvaged objects (Tuesday), kaleidoscopic cardboard glasses, colored lenses and spare materials), parade posters, with the creation of collages inspired by the five senses (Thursday).
From conception to design, up to the reproduction of the project, experimenting with analog post-production through distortion, enlargement, reduction and collage. Among assorted old and new images, with mouths, ears, noses and eyes with strange features, the participants will be guided, through analogical processes such as photocopy printing, in the conception and realization of fanzines to keep with them.
La parata strampalata!
The works realized during the five days of workshops, designed and planned for the review Parla Listen Watch Fai, giant puppets, flashy costumes, goggled masks, howling flags, and frightened musical instruments, will come to life with the Wacky Parade !, an original and unpublished parade of colors, music and noise in the spaces of Triennale.
