Following the great success enjoyed last year, we host again this extraordinary project by DOM- based on Jiro Taniguchi’s graphic novel. L’uomo che cammina (The Walking Man) creates a narrative of spaces that breaks the boundary between centre and outskirts, urban and third landscape, human and non-human.
A man, the writer and playwright Antonio Moresco, walks through the city. During this journey, the landscape both reveals itself to and hides away from the audience that follows him at a distance, as if spying on him, in a balance between identification and detachment.
The locations follow one another as in a continuous single take – a square, a station, a cathedral, an uncultivated field, a swamp, a public swimming pool, a motel. The living experience of walking becomes a pretext for a hand-to-hand fight with reality.
