Together with Tesorino perché hai perso? (Sweetheart, Why did you Lose?), Riflessi in Bianco e Nero (Reflections in Black and White) forms part of a trilogy in its creation phase, which confronts and becomes entangled in the themes of victory and defeat, and their relationship with time in all its different dynamics, in and out of reality. The phase "Riflessi in Bianco e nero" concentrates on losing, loss, the losers, time and memories. The itinerary is in 4 stages, following a descending path, each stage in a very different location.
The entire route is marked by music and sounds in the form of sound installations.
First performance: The forth stage "Il Funerale del Tempo" (The Funeral of Time) was presented on 12 & 13 September at the Settembre Dello Scompiglio programme at the Tenuta in Vorno (Lucca). The complete performance has been presented at the Maggio Dello Scompiglio programme on 29 & 30 May 2010 and then at the Settembre Dello Scompiglio from 9 to 12 September and from 23 to 26 September 2010.
