video installation with 3 synchronized projections of 41 minutes
Guided by a MC, a group of actors has to take possession of the stage and various characters depicted in frescoes deco- rating the filming room. Some game-like exercises rhythm the action and promote the emergence of the characters chosen by the actors.
Apart from the MC, who has the role of the director, none of the actors had prior knowledge of the project and what they were supposed to play. The actors did not know each other and have never been in the location.
The games, inspired on models promoting social integration of strangers (like corporate “team-building” exercises), allow characters to get to know each other, but create moments of rupture and doubt. Who is in front of us: a character or a person?
