On friday 14 december at 10pm Xing presents at Raum Short stories of Fires and Carbon, a new work by Alessandro Di Pietro with the performative involvement of Andrea Magnani, Costanza Candeloro, Riccardo Baruzzi and Riccardo Benassi.
Short stories of Fires and Carbon is a sequence of 4 performative acts that all use three simple elements of flame, spark and carbon. Reflecting on the discovery and the domestication of fire as the first defence against the intangible and the looming, Short stories of Fires and Carbon fulfils its own prophecy of the birth of the cultural animal.
Your meat is cleaner and more tender, the place where you live is not only warmer but even more beautiful. A new 'inexperienced generation', created in extremis, is embodied by 4 artists-performers (Riccardo Benassi, Andrea Magnani, Costanza Candeloro, Riccardo Baruzzi) and by 4 projects linked to time, chaos, cultural orphanhood, and cynicism.
