La Fondazione continues its collaboration with the Festival delle Colline Torinesi – Torino Creazione Contemporanea (f11 October – 6 November 2022).
The historic theatre review, still organised by TPE – Teatro Astra, is presenting a wide-ranging edition that can count on 7 premieres, 8 productions, 20 shows, 27 days and 37 performances.
The Festival delle Colline continues its new journey as an autumn festival, reaffirming its relationship with contemporary creation thanks also to the project partnership with the Fondazione Merz and its spaces, especially during the week of ContemporaryArt.
The program at Fondazione:
Thursday 20 October at 7 pm
VIRGILIO SIENI, DANZA CIECA
Virgilio Sieni returns to the Fondazione Merz to present a new creation shared and proposed with a blind dancer, a performance amidst the exhibited works and complicit glances.
Sunday 23 settembre at 5 pm
STABILEMOBILE | GIUSEPPE STELLATO – TRILOGIA DELLE MACCHINE
(OBLÒ/MIND THE GAP/AUTOMATED TELLER MACHINE)
Environmental installations – an ATM, a washing machine, a sandwich and soft drinks machine – foster the emergence of powerful metaphors. A person and various objects confront each other. They say something unpredictable.
Friday 28 October at 7 pm and Saturday 29 October at 5pm
MADALENA REVERSA – MANFRED | Prima
Inspired by Lord Byron’s dramatic poem and set to music by Schumann, a live-set by the young Paduan group aims to combine theatre and visual art, installation and performance with a looming apocalypse in the background.
Tuesday 1 and Wednesday 2 November at 9 pm
MOTUS – YOU WERE NOTHING BUT WIND
After “Tutto Brucia” (Everything Burns), which wanders through Euripides’ tragedy, the focus shifts to the fury and desperation of Hecuba, in the post-human scenario of a “world to come”, where the howls of this fierce woman echo.
Friday 4, Saturday 5, and Sunday 6 November at 9 pm
MOTUS – OF THE NIGHTINGALE I ENVY THE FATE | Prima
A performance created for the festival that, again starting from “Tutto Brucia”, investigates the figure of Cassandra, present in Western culture from Homer to Christa Wolf. The prophetess of doom who envies the happy fate of the nightingale.
