When the CHOREOGRAPHIC SCULPTURES by Emiliano Pellisari meet with Bato’s SCULPTURE-MASKS a new performance is born, inspired by the magic and spell of the Italian Renaissance and Baroque gardens, inhabited by heroes and monsters of classical mythology. The figures are set against a dark background, where the minimalist landscape is constantly redefined through ropes that outline the shapes of hills, roofs and labyrinths, and sculpted by the strategic use of light.
In the subversion of the laws of physics and in the establishment of a new balance lies the fascinating technological secret that regulates the motion of this theatrical performance.
A white environment where colored clouds of tulle stand out and form fluid patches, which sometimes recall elements of a natural landscape and of a woman’s body; a somewhat suspended atmosphere, like that of a dream, where the actors perform in a way that’s reminiscent of Fellini. From the encounter between Emiliano Pellisari ‘s CHOREOGRAPHIC SCULPTURES and Bato’s THREE-DIMENSIONAL PAINTINGS, an ethereal, dreamlike performance arises, where signs overlap in a world at the edge of reality – a hymn to illusion and the power of fantasy.
