performance with Andrea Chessa, Elena Inserra, Elisa Franzoi and Silvia Pizzi / audio soundtrack

Ex polis. Triennale di Milano, Milan. May 21, 2011.

Dance as a form of protest against the forces from the ‘up above’ was practised in public gatherings during the air strikes on Belgrade in 1999. The performers here attempt to dance ‘against’ the rhythm of missiles, ‘resisting’ a soundtrack made from the ‘soundscape’ of the US ‘shock and awe’ bombing operations on Baghdad, 2003.
