Romeo Castellucci – Yuri Ancarani – Scott Gibbons

SOLD OUT

One hundred skeletons march through the streets of Milan one November night. The silent eloquence of their advance expresses what they can no longer say. They have walked for an hour across squares, monumental sites and churchyards. The skeletons make no demands, other than the right to continue to walk on these streets and to visit their homes again. Making this film, Yuri Ancarani has focused on electrically charged images and figures, while Scott Gibbons has interpreted the silent march through the paradox of sound.

Romeo Castellucci is a world-renowned theatre director, artist and designer celebrated for his creative work that encompasses all artistic disciplines and offers the audience a comprehensive experience. Castellucci’s pieces are regularly staged and produced by the most prestigious international venues and festivals. He directed the Theatre Section of the Venice Biennale, was Artiste Associé at the Avignon Festival and is currently Grand Invité at Triennale Milano as well as guest director at Berlin’s Schaubhüne. He has been bestowed with the title of Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters by the Ministry of Culture of the French Republic and with an honorary degree by the University of Bologna; he is a member of the Académie Royale de Belgique and has been awarded, among other international prizes, the Golden Lion at Venice Biennale and two Golden Masks for his opera pieces. 

Yuri Ancarani is an Italian video artist and filmmaker. His works emerge at the intersection between documentary filmmaking and contemporary art and are the result of an artistic research aiming at investigating the less visible aspects of the everyday. His creations have been presented in exhibitions and museums, both nationally and internationally, including the Venice Biennale, MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome and the R. Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York. He has taken part in several festivals, including Venice Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival, Canadian International Documentary Festival in Toronto and Cinéma du Réel in Parigi. He won the New York-based Cinema Eye Honors Talent Prize.

Scott Gibbons​​ has been composing music for more than 30 years, with a two-fold exploration into the possibilities of natural acoustic sound on the one hand, and those of audio technology on the other. Although he is a seminal and influential composer of dark ambient and micromusic, his work is not so easily pigeonholed. His compositions demonstrate an acute balance between delicacy and physicality, often focusing around frequencies that are at the outermost limits of human hearing, and embracing quietness as a central element. He has created many unique electronic instruments for use on stage and has earned a strong reputation for his live performances. Gibbons has also created many works for large-scale spectacle with Groupe F to accompany fireworks which utilize the sound of pyrotechnics as an intregal part of the musical arrangement.
