Inverse power of wavelengths – performative lecture is a cross-sectional survey on Alessandro Carboni’s performance practice methodology based on the relationship between body and the city. The performance illustrates a practice that has been developed over a long period of research in several European and Asian cities and mega-cities, such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Hanoi, Ho Chi Min City, through a “molecular” process, a spatial frame of the transformations occurring within the urban space.
The research created an hybrid/cross-disciplinary testing ground where observation and documentation of urban events become a getaway for visual interpretations and performance actions. Tensions and flows that animate urban spaces are recreated on stage by buttons, stings and modular elements that are continuously manipulated and rearranged by the performer. Inverse power of wavelengths aims to rethink the city not as something given, but rather as a place where the body and its specific features becomes the key element of discussion and a driving force for change.
This performative talk is presented by LePARC as part of the milieuXbauhaus Festival, and is free and open to the public.
