Shape-Performance for Ropes, Cloth and Pulleys《塑》

Centrum Scenografii Polskjei-Artist: Francesco Fassone

Francesco Fassone, by creating scenic machineries with the employment of tools, derived from navigation and stagecraft and shared by both of them (ropes, pulleys, cloth), makes a research on the prospect of making a travel within the limits of a narrow space. “Shape” is an apparatus composed by a connection of pulleys and ropes, fixed to a big white cloth (50 m²), made of a sailing textile, with an adjustable strucure, like a sail foot, installed inside an architectural space. The mechanism, driven manually, by two stagehands, like a sail operated by sailors, can move within the ambient, crawling on the surfaces and transforming, creating an incessant process of permutation, evoking different spaces, abstract forms and sensations.The performance wants to suggest a parallelism between the use of a theatrical backdrop and a sail, to evoke a metaphorical navigation in an unconscious dimension.
