Residui. Theatrical reading

15.12.2018 – 15.12.2019, 17:00-18:30

BUILDING is pleased to host Residui, a theatrical reading that will be attended by three young actresses. The event will take place in the context of the personal exhibition by Jan Fabre The Castles in the Hour Blue, on view at BUILDING until December 22nd, 2018, with the aim of highlighting the part of his artistic production that exclusively concerns his activity as theatrical author.

The protagonists of this event will be Federica Carra, Anahì Traversi and Carla Valente. These actresses will interpret some texts taken from the publication Residui e altri testi, a testimony that leads the reader into the inner world of Jan Fabre and within his thinking about theater and art.

The reading will consist of a series of personal texts written by the artist, almost streams of consciousness embodying his natural inclination and passion for the world of dream and theater. The relevance of Fabre’s work as a theatrical author, in fact, is equal to his relevance as an artist: the theater has been the genesis of his work starting from a very young age, opening new frontiers in this field and bringing to light productions which are unique and never realized before, as Mount Olympus – To Glorify the Cult of Tragedy, a theater performance lasting 24 hours.
