FORUM OF THE FUTURE, RIVOLI THEATER
Scenography presents itself as an essay on concentrated shape. It is build in iron and concrete and it destroys itself with plastic pretension and arms strength.
It pretends to reflect in our relationship with the classic imaginary, which is presented to in the shape of a ruin, and we speculate about the ruin of the future that we project with today's constructions. Since perspective manipulation in its composition (used as well in the multiple "neos"), until the induction of time on the plays that were never presented, we build a fake narrative with real things.
In the end, Antiquity architecture is alike our own - it looks like what is not and, right before its end, it will be something else still.
