Opacity #2

Opacity#2, is a relational performance that brings together theoretical practice and assembly formats. The work is aimed is to activate a public discussion starting from a shared analysis of some representations related to the representations of the bodies in the “western” culture. The definitions of body and “otherness”, according to a modernist cultural approach, have marked – until yesterday – the border of the exoticism, to be renewed – today – on the basis of a neurotic search for “transparency” every time that we evocate the concept of identity. Opacity# 2 is therefore conceived as a public work room, in which starting from a common discussion, the recent artistic research of the Chiasma group becomes visible in the frame of the larger project L’esemplare capovolto\Excelsior.

Salvo Lombardo presents at Short Theatre 2020 also Jungle Soul, scheduled on 4, 5 and 6 September.
