VICINI (from the Italian "near" or "neighbours"), is born from the attempt to create an elastic and sensitive structure where to perceive how individual and group actions are constantly interwoven with their environment.
Through gestures, words and objects, the 4 performers on stage speak of the parallelism and the connection between the "inside" and the "outside", between the perceivable, the speakable and the imaginable, between the senses, the thoughts and the internal poetics of a body-singular and a body-crowd.

From October 8th 2023, witnessing the escalation of brutalities inflicted on the Palestinian people, artistic and political reflections began to weave inseparably.
In the network of connections, affectations and parallelisms between near and far events, sprang the impulse to extend our gaze to the east and approach the testimonies and poems of resilience and resistance.

"From what wind have you come?
Tell me the name of your wound and I’ll know
the road we got lost twice!"
("Mural" Mahmoud Darwish)

In VICINI, the transformations of the scenic and poetic landscape open spaces for sensitive reflection on how to build a less probable future on a trembling ground.
