Steps to be taken in case of death: 2019

„Steps to be taken in case of death:“ is an operating theater, the performers are surgeons operating the instrument behind a medical screen. The audience can observe the surgery  on 5  LCD monitors placed on either side of the medical screen which display the sectioned image of the violin filmed by a webcam. The idea of creating a “surgical theater” where to perform gives the possibility to set up an almost sacred off-limits area where to experiment a deeper control on the different soound-visual-gestural artistic modalities. In this piece the audience is guided in a very controlled visual and sound experience: hiding, showing, disguising, mangling  the reality of the actions on the basis of the musical, visual or narrative necessities. The aim is to make the audience experience a condition of emotional oscillation between an involved and tensioned condition and a more detached and contemplative one.
