Just like in a thriller, the work involves two men and two women in precarious and ambiguous situations characterised by unstable relations in a state of dangerous isolation. A concerted piece for four characters, images of star-studded skies and a score that speaks of missed encounters, words unsaid, and of the inability to love and to show one’s true self.

DISTANT LIGHTS FROM DARK PLACES speaks of extinction, seen as accidents and disappearances - the destruction of relationships and of our orientation within the landscape - be it natural and wild or domesticated and private. Just like in a thriller, the work involves two men and two women in precarious and ambiguous situations characterised by unstable relations in a state of dangerous isolation. All this underlined - almost psychoanalytically - by pure fate, risk and fear, obscure drivers of our common existence, and a dream into which all the characters seem to slide - a space that is both real and unnatural, a place of the subconscious and of projected ideas - which, like a kind of Moebius strip, re-designs what we, perhaps, consider to be reality. A concerted piece for four characters, images of star-studded skies and a score that speaks of missed encounters, words unsaid, and of the inability to love and to show one’s true self.

The event is part of the series ENDLING E ALTRE COSE PERDUTE, by lacasadargilla.
ENDLING E ALTRE COSE PERDUTE is an exploration of themes regarding the concept of “end”, viewed in its broad sense as extinction of species and society, but also of memory, time and relations. Extinction is not related exclusively to the classic idea of the extinction of species, of all those delicate and complex organisms that make up our planet, but also the “dead ends” of our lives, failed relationships and alliances, of our past and of a future that we can only catch a glimpse of. The Earth is our field of action, the only concrete place to experience life as we know it, the first field of study of the complex systems that provide the foundations of relationships, imagination, anthropologies and ecosystems that resist - barely surviving - geological, biological and human mutations.
