EXPLANATORY NOTES:

Performance art has been incorporating more and more various media and has been nurtured by them, it has been increasing its productive potential because there are as yet no rules governing it. It's an archaic production activity, with almost no history. How many performers have heard of Schlemmer? For me sound is a natural practical basis, but at first I try to give it the role of framing space; then it occurs as a harmonizing element to relate gestures, accessories, image distortions and rituals. These relations are important for the scenario. More than just creating a setting for the stage, it creates a setting for the space; a temporary passage from painting to a reality that we are striving to control. To me using these various tools brings together the energy of opposite and relative ideas.
“We did our performance Caution, Danger at a time when artistic strategies were creating a false perspective, somewhat as if the decor were ready, and the actors hadn't arrived yet. I don't know if this work has any relationship to this but I'm observing. The dimensions of the space that we were going to use were disrupted, what was vertical had become horizontal, everything else followed this pattern including the ascent which proceeded horizontally. Our thoughts while elaborating these small gestures, images, sounds, objects, evolved by adding specifications and by crossing things out, according to a method ill adapted to marketing, with few shortcuts, which is all I can say about it as an introduction. Other texts will follow other actions about these hikes into the land of savages.

Sound:

drops of water in a cake pan + echoes.

Monteverdi “Currite Populi” and “O Beata Viae” records played backwards at various speeds.

Beethoven "piano Concerto in C major "cassette tape played at normal speed” fast P.B.”

Description: 
On stage facing the audience, Dominique Angel read the text on a sort of swing, made of ropes and straps holding him up in the air at a small height.

Meanwhile, Daniel Farioli was harnessed to a rope, pulled a few yards from the ground over the audience. He painted watercolors that fell on the crowd as Dominique Angel read on.

The stage set was made of cardboard cubes of various sizes painted in black, some of them suspended.

At the end of the performance, Daniel Farioli set off a mechanism which caused the entire device to collapse.
