Homo Novus 2015



Alessandro Sciarroni
2, 3 September 20.00, Railway history museum | 15 and 10 eur

Aurora focuses on sport and more specifically – Goalball, a Paralympic team sport for the blind and visually impaired. The athletes have only their hearing and touch to rely on. The audience gets to see a real match, but the game-master forces things and thereby disrupts, little by little, the perception of the actors and the audience. By intervening in the sound and lighting, he turns the playground into a dramaturgical field of tension. Space blurs and time slows, while Sciarroni sheds a new light on how we look and what we see. Aurora is the last part in Sciarroni’s trilogy Will you still love me tomorrow? that aims to intensify the vulnerability and resilience of bodies.

Meet Alessandro Sciarroni at Festival centre on Skolas 15 before the screening of Cosimo Terlizzi’s film Aurora, a creative process on 4 September at 17.30.

About artist

Alessandro Sciarroni is an Italian theatre maker with several years of experience in visual arts and theatre research. His works are featured in contemporary dance and theatre festivals, museums and art galleries, as well as in unconventional spaces and involve professionals from different disciplines. In addition to the rigor, coherence and clarity of each creation, his work tries to uncover obsessions, fears and fragilities of the act of performing, to propose different perception of time and to challenge the relationship between the audience and the performers.
