Cosmesi fa un buco deluxe

In June 2018 we made a record of eight pop songs, which were entirely written, played and sung by us two visual artists and performers who had never played an instrument before.
In re-establishing a relationship with doing, in imagining a synthetic and symbolic action, we imagined ourselves digging like children on the beach, like a hole in the bank, like the foundations of a house or digging a grave. then Cosmesi fa un buco is a hole dug by Cosmesi. During the excavation songs happen, in the difficulty of not knowing how to play our songs. Cosmesi fa is a disguise. An impossible mixture: the overlap of two worlds, finding oneself playing the role of
impostor and ignoring the limit, pretending.

Cosmesi was founded 17 years ago by Eva Geatti and Nicola Toffolini. Since the beginning, the group has been collaborating with various artists to develop hybrid projects within the context of theatre, installation and performance art. The first work (2003) had a very long title, while the latest production (which premiered at Ipernatural – Drodesera Festival, 2019) is called Cosmesi fa un buco, it is the last piece of a project that contains many others (a record, a live concert, a video clip…).
