A night on the rooftops. Presentation
by Stefano Scipioni
The performance of Una note sui tetti, set within a series of assaults, called Iniziative di ii (the plural form of io), on the city of Rome, took place between December 20th and 30th,1977. The participants in these exploits were exponents and artists of the Roman experimental theater of that era, close to Beat ’72: Del Re-Nesbitt, Mario Romano, Gianni Dessì, Il Carrozzone. La Gaia Scienza did its performance on December 17th at Via Flaminia 259 (home of two members of the group), in two phases: the first in the apartment and the second on the roof.
The performance space was based on the ambiguity between inside and outside, private and public. The apartment floor of the rooms, painted blue, created significant interference with the sky of the terrace, in a continual swing between high and low, lightness and gravity. The choice of space was dictated by the group’s continual quest to create a sentimental education made of encounters between bodies, spaces and lights.Continua a leggere...
