SOLO version – he
Is dark. There is a naked figure in the dark. We get closer and closer to it. He has in front of him a bowl with blood and in the blood a long thread, long as his body length. All around the blowl is white ash. He sits bent on the bowl easily hitting it. Dooong. Dooong. And then surrounding it with the stick to make a continuous vibration.
He is erected. Singing at the bowl. He stops singing and waits motionless for the sound to fade completely away. He then touches the ash, takes from it and puts on his face. An the 2nd time puts on his body. And 3rd time he puts on his cock. He bends over the bowl and puts his face in the blood. Out of it, in his mouth, he takes out the wet bloody thread. He comes up again and the thread touches his white chest. Things get mixed.
He masturbates in a weird painful dance with blood and ash. He cums. He cums in the bowl. Sperm dripping in the blood. He hits the bowl three time. Dooong. Dooong. Doooong. Waits motionless for the sound to disappear and takes very softly the bowl and drinks it all.
He is dazed, numb, like in a trance. On his face very very softly there is a smile [we start hearing the bowl’s long long sound]. He retreats in darkness and leaves us in the dark with the bowl and the ash all over the floor. And the sound.
DUAL version – he/she
She is on the street. A guy comes to her, they seem to know each other, or better said they seem to meet for the first time. There is nothing said. He takes out a small note and gives it to her. He hugs her and leaves.
At night, on a street with a dead end – from the back, a woman puts on a mask. A textile mask that leaves out only the mouth.
She enters a dark building and climbs the round stairs. On the hallways is dark. She enters a room where a man sits naked on the ground seems like sleeping.
She takes out of her bag a little container and puts on his hand a white powder. Is ash. Near his hand put a round Tibetan bowl. She takes out a little knife and at the other hand cuts his veins. She lets the blood dripping in the bowl.
She spits on his mouth – again and again until she has no more spit in her mouth.
His hand begins to move, she gets back, afraid. He opens his mouth and tastes the saliva on the floor . He feels the ash on his hand and begins playing with it. Still in the ground with his face to the floor, he puts ash on his face. He comes up and takes the ash down on his body. More
This is a video I made starting from the problem I have with conciliating existence and reality. It is a superposition of different notes I made sawed together in an organic time/scape. In a trance like pattern of movement of the body, of the camera and of the ideas being described.
Reality is so multilayered and breaching through is so rare. It is our most primal effort. Is remaking patterns so that they will fit together into nothingness. Or misfitted.
This is a video that I made in 2012 with the help of 6 dancers – the Beings – with whom I tried to create a primordial world. A pre-human world where Beings made out of flesh and chaos begin to see, hear, touch, feel their shape, their breathe, their heart beat.
Beings that grow out of plants, beings that grow out of ruins and forgotten knowledge. That is why we filmed in an abandoned and burned old factory.
It was amazing to find nature inside a building, nature that grows in its own language, in its mistery as the Beings do too.
Unmade – are posts about what I would like to do and couldn’t find a way to do it. Either no performers or no financial possibilities. Usually no performers because my ideas are often too pornographic, too emotional, transgressive, too truthful without any possibility of hiding behind a controllable Persona.
NO GENITALS – two performers a girl and a boy face to face they tape each others Genitals, they try to make the other one completely non-sexual. Genitals as the mouth, the eyes, the tongue, the breasts, the penis, the vagina, the toes, the ribs, the neck, the hair, the ears, hands, armpits, asshole, everything.
And after all is closed they get close to one another and touch, and make Love covered in tape, a non genitalia sexuality.
ANUS is FEAR – two performers, two boys – one touching the others anus, the anus as the ultimate representative of fear.
Gentle touching of the Anus, the contracting of the Anus, the relaxation -the Anus is like a wild animal that fears so quickly so irrational so stupid.
The colors change as the feelings of the touching – the music will be specially composed on what is happening.
PUPPET – two performers boy boy or boy girl – between two people there are some kind of worlds that change with time. First is the stage of PUPPET where one moves the other and he just receives passively all that One is giving him.her – then is IMITATION where the Two imitates One in everything – then is CONTRADICTION where Two does all but to follow the One – then in IMITATION of CONTRADICTION where One starts to imitate Two’s contradiction – and then is DIALOGUE where Two moves in feeling with One and One in feeling with Two – when they become All and One/Two and a Whole.
A dance/movement performance.
