residency SCENE44 / Luciana Galliano I Davide Quadrio I Alessandro Sciarroni - FLUXO an encounter with water

28 June > 3 July 2021

FLUXO is an original new work concepted by Luciana Galliano and Davide Quadrio, directed by Alessandro Sciarroni (Golden Lion, Venice Dance Biennale 2019) that deals with the poetic power of water, as a constant, essential factor of life and as an element of urgent relevance in the Mediterranean maritime space: a multiplier of desire, a place of life and hope, a place of death and annihilation, a theatre of socio-anthropological dramas. 
With a mischievous nod to the pre-Fluxus artistic period, this creation puts into perspective a version of Mauricio Kagel’s musical work Mare Nostrum, a dystopian fable that humorously recounts the discovery, pacification and conversion of the Mediterranean region by a tribe from Amazonia. A sea that has never ceased to be a movement of ebb and flow between East and West, and between the peoples of its southern and northern shores.


The project is supported by the Italian Council (9th edition 2020), as part of a programme for the promotion of Italian contemporary art throughout the world by the General Directorate for Contemporary Creativity of the Italian Ministry of Culture.
