Spreco (Waste) is a ritual, a burial ritual that requires the participation of a group of people.
The action is taken from a scene from the show Nudità (Nudity) in which the Son, locked in his room, attempts to reassure members of his family, who are listening at the door, as he tries to minimise the symptoms of his transformation.
The family members don’t understand the words and they push the room, making it rotate across the stage.
The son continues to speak, first to them, then to himself, explaining what is happening, until the room - and his reality - is completely turned over. The end of the scene shows the existence of two planes of reality, parallel but no longer communicating: the family on this side, the Son on the other.
So, the Son begins to die.
Spreco reprises this action.
The room, a human-scale piece of architecture, is transported through the woods of the Tenuta Dello Scompiglio.
It is made to rotate on its edges. The top and the bottom cancel each other out along its path. It is no longer the family of the show pushing the room, it is a temporary community created for the project through the involvement of a few citizens of Lucca and its surroundings. The performer has no more words to speak, just a song that he sings on a loop. The work is the video of the action, the image taken of what has already taken place.
