No Game


[...] beautiful, with a cheerfulness delicate and weightless, a kind of desperate tenderness, hidden wings of fallen angels, and a desire to play and get lost without accepting any of the appearances of the world [...]

Pietro Citati, L'armonia del mondo


No Game aims to face the complexity of having an addiction to alcohol, video games, and human beings. Nowadays, the ways the new Smart generations are amusing themselves can represent a huge danger, a “game over.” We are far from the Bohemian Age full of French artists: when we drink that extra glass, we transform a dream into a nightmare. 

The realistic gesture, either theatrical or danced, leans to some memorial places as the ones we live in real life: from the disorder of our sensorial perceptions to the inner solitudes. The body is a misshapen expression of a vision. As Omero quoted: «the crazy wine that makes sing and laugh even the wisest man forces him to dance and makes him take out, the perfect word which is better not to say.»
