TRY DIE

2017
Try Die TD collaboration between Francesca Banchelli and Emiliano Zelada
Curated by LiveSoundtracks, Soho House Barcelona

Francesca Banchelli: sculptures made by polystyrene, miniatures on 35mm slides, performance, voice.
Emiliano Zelada: music

TD – Try Die is a visual and musical performance, formed by the presence of various elements of a narration, in which a presence (the artist Francesca Banchelli), is playing with some piece of icebergs inside the greenish water of a swimmingpool. New and old music compositions played live by the artist and composer Emiliano Zelada and a projection of drawings specifically produced for the event by the artist Francesca Banchelli, who will also perform some of the voice pieces from the Twin Drive (Banchelli-Zelada)’s repertoire. All these elements are fragments of a story, but together they form a circularity that has no beginning nor an end, and in which the spectator is involved within a dialectic emotional development.
