The promenade performance draws on the theme of death and dying, through the celebration of one’s own funeral, but also tells of the relevance and instability of living, in an individual and collective sense, in its affinities with the mysteries and the imagery of the alchemical process. The word “rubedo”, which evokes the eternal transformation of the body and soul, thus finds expression in a path in which the performative action, the video installation and the walking itself in the nature of the Tenuta are all intertwined.

The audience is led along an itinerary that begins with the site-specific video On the corner (already presented in 2019), and then develops along another track, following a path in nature that accompanies, contrasts and discourses with that of a life. Various buildings stand out like bodies, intact, ruined, full of light or underground, while the performative elements of water and fire intertwine with the elements of the nature itself. Two decorated donkeys help us to celebrate the dissolution of matter, the letting go of many things, trinkets and memories, to allow us to go further, to transform ourselves.

Existence – in the light of life as a complete work, with all its falls, with its little deaths – reaching the end can reveal itself as a fabric full of irony, colours and even lightness. And those who remain celebrate their sadness, but also honour the poetry of the moment.

limited number of 11 participants - booking required - sports footwear with trekking soles is recommended - in case of bad weather the two videos part of the performance will remain viewable in the interior spaces
