public art / videoart
Site- and community-specific artwork, a piece of Public Art. We are looking for new squares where to perform in a participatory style. Check our page.
PLANT STILLNESS (L’immobilità delle piante)
A Kekekokakekokekakokeké bird protects and takes care of the last tree on earth. A performer and a plant share a space for a limited time of the day.
A piece of Post-Theatre, where the actor enters and exits the character, or is the character getting brighter and turning off?
A deep, multisensorial experience for the participant: never-felt-before fragrances, videos, stillness, dance, improvised poetry, and scientific explanations are the ingredients of a public performative meeting conducted by the artist and researcher Antonio Irre. In cooperation with prof. Ninkovic (Ecology Center, SLU) and Barbara D’Altoé (Maison Rodé).
Video available on request.
PAROLE DENTRO (Inner Words)
A performance based on portraits, done by writing instead of by painting.
In the second part of the performance the spectator can ufficially become an artist, passing the border and working together with Antonio Irre to create and sign a work of art.
PAROLE DENTRO VINTAGE (Inner Words Vintage Edition)
Using the same technique developed for “Parole Dentro”, portraits are done on vintage photographies, and then passed to another artist, who creates a work of art starting from both photo and portrait. A process of collaboration, that blooms in different ways, according to the poetic of each artist.
Works in cooperation with Paolo Danese, Federica Benegiamo, Chiara Coltro, Matteo Schiavon, Sara Zamperlin.
The action is inspired by the lithography «Nebulosa» By Joan Mirò, and by the text Arcane 17, by André Breton.
Starting from a white space, the night arrives, and the nebulosa is slowly built.
Readings by Jodorowski, Baudelaire, Majakowski, live drumming of an artisanal bell/ball, with heavenly sound.
A surrealist action, the infinite loneliness of the human being, and its delicate secrecy.
For indoor or outdoor spaces.
See the full video of the performance.

IL PRATO INFINITO (endless meadow)
Itinerant theatre play
Open air performance of physical theatre, inspired by the Methamorphosis of Plants by Goethe and Palomar by Calvino, and by the Theory of Complexity.
A reflection on nature and the human being between art and science.
I am specialized in theatre-outside-theatres. I can arrange site-specific performances designed for your site. Theatre or performance art.
See as an example the short video of Spiriti Sottili, site-specific performance developed for the garden of Villa Barbarigo Valsanzibio, a spiritual garden from the XVII century. Or check my portfolio about A FIOR D’ACQUA, (the show for one spectator at a time on a inflatable kayak) and many other site- and audience-specific performances.
