The action is activated by the collapse of context and participatory
actions, where in a crescendo of perceptive complexity,
each presence is potentially invested with responsibility.
The performance aims to contrive a set of dynamics apt to
bring out a status of ideological displacement, attempting to
instigate the idea of annihilation or, on the contrary, the possibility
of rephrasing a dream.
During the performance, two judo’s teams fight in the middle
of the arena, surrounded by a loud audience of actors mixed
to spectators, all of them equipped with the two teams’ blue
and white flags. The hybrid scenario is activated by the intersection
of a theatre like scene, with a photographic set,
and a gymnasium. After a while, on the stands among the
spectators, some performers break the loud scene waving
big red flags: their presence remains ambiguous for not representing
any of the teams, but recalling in the aspect the
remote perception of revolutionary presences. Towards the
end noise caused by the public, which are by the end turned
into supporters, and the other performers becomes heavy
and cacophonous; when it reaches its peak, viewers are
asked to leave.
