The performance consists of a series of scenes aimed to a future work for Avignon Festival 2008, based upon Danteís Commedia. Itís a series of non-linked images, performed into different spaces within an abandonment architecture. Symbols. The history of Movement. The first and last form of light. Manís grace and malediction. Things belonging to people. A leather glove that picks up the bridles of the Form tah Dante left on the ground. The title suggests that visions are vexilla inferni the approaching standards of the King of Hell, like Luciferís six wings described in verses 46-52 of Inferno last part.
Things that are approaching, getting closer and closer. Thing of this world. Approaching like standards, like images that never ceased to live with people. This could be my dice throw now, people.
