Kind of Blue is conceived as the third part of the Trilogia dell’Assenza (Trilogy of Absence). The director, Cecilia Bertoni, creates video portraits exploring the artists and collaborators of the preceding shows, now however, as people without a role, just as themselves. The director explores their physical and mental obsessions and their relationship to the creative act. They talk about their secrets and their bodies as imperfect casings. The bathrooms of their own homes become the places in which their secrets, their follies and their disappointments become explicit, while a kitchen becomes the nerve centre of the creation, but also the prelude and the epilogue of an endless wait.

The audience, seated on a scaffold, is enveloped by scrolling images of the video installation and views from above the blue earth as seen from a distance, the theatre of action of fragmented bodies. Live on stage, a turret and an astronaut who sees all this as a kind of afterlife. In a seemingly arbitrary manner he associates the terrestrial stories, his favourite game, as an evaluation of what he misses the most in the spatial dimension: people? grace? or an upright and impartial judge who sets him on the right path? He no longer knows the difference between what is true and what is false, what is real and what is fictitious, what is incarnate and what is not, what is past and what is present. A thread woven into the scene is a text by F. Nietzsche, about the pursuit of individuality, which rises impervious and strongly solitary.

Kind of Blue is a stand-alone performance. To further explore the themes of the performance, the director has published a journal that contains notes of her work with the performers, consisting of texts, images and drawings.
