Arroz con pollo issue n. 2 : Prophecies and pronouncements is a three chapters series of texts screened and played by performers inside Sibyl Sessions, third step of a trilogy on myths directed by Alessia Siniscalchi: the distant memory of a red/green past imprinted with super 8 film and acridly sweet images from 1960’s Hollywood. A digital, Whatsapp present where human contact is still possible, where live stories proliferate over social networks. A completely virtual, dystopian future where we are prisoners of a technological helmet, self-obsession and individualism, disrupting everything we try to remember about ourselves. In this work, started on the basis of a collective residency in a theatre in Paris during the first week of March 2021, I write prophecies, responses and pronouncements as Instagram Stories.I invited to join german artist Julia Liedel to interact with my writing. 3 writing sections : 1. Paranoid anxiolytic prophecies making you see the future is approaching. Part of a work called : Submit! Why artists are poor? 2. Out of date prophecies. Corporate late prophecies to make you understand that the revolution we were not expecting for is actually something we really looked forward to. 3. Mundane non sibylline pronouncements.

Prophecies and pronouncements in Sibyl Sessions. Following Medea’s Visions and Oreste will be back, the Kulturscio’k Live Art Collective is bringing Sibyl Sessions to Parco Archeologico di Cuma, Festival Antro. The final work in a trilogy of contemporary, socially-commentating adaptations from Greek mythology, is a mixed media exploration of womanhood and time, mingling a romantic nostalgia for the past with dystopian omens for the future. More than performance, it incorporates film, photography, projections, and live music to create a distinctly unique aural and visual experience. Director and performer Alessia Siniscalchi orchestrates Sibyl Sessions with a team of talented artists, among them musician Phil St. George, visual artist Giovanni Ambrosio, and lighting designer Benjamin Sillon whose projector-helmet adds a new dimension of symbolic beauty to the piece. Radical technological inventions, exacerbated and extreme, become a pretext to tell the present, the past, and the future–the story of the oracle. Giovanni Ambrosio features a four parts installation handled by Benjamin, the text based work Prophecies and pronouncements

How do I archive? How do I archive a performance which is not mine in  K. Revue trans-européenne de philosophie et arts 8 – 1/2022: Medea and the laceration of Care / Medea: la lacerazione della cura How do I archive a performance which is not mine? How do they perform an archive which is not theirs?What exactly is the subject of stage and theatre photography? What should it depict or archive? Why images are required? Working outside the limits of a discipline, it is thrilling to shift, in and with theatre photography, from the space designed to be the limited area in which a photographer can activate his point of view of a wider space without boundaries. How do I archive a performance which is not mine?in Medea’s is an archive/installation/sculpture/performance. A photo archive from the long term creation process of Medea’s visions, directed by Alessia Siniscalchi, is engraved in blocks of printed papers/photographs bound with a plastic ribbon coming from an on-line low cost printer. The ribbon is fragile and can be easily broken.

Oreste will be back Oreste will be back: five chapters compose a performance/installation mixing video, art, music, dance, theatre. By Kulturscio’k live art collective. Since the beginning of my collaboration with Alessia Siniscalchi, I am almost never out of the stage space. In OWB I go in with a documentary based work, Ius Soli. Orestes’ creation by Alessia Siniscalchi includes a process of rewriting my work, in its materiality and in its meaning. Orestes also obeys the law of the earth (ius soli). In December 2020 I introduced two painted works from the Opus incertum series, the healing process: my journal painted directly on the wall. Printed on fabrics, those images act as a blanket / cloak / flag / liquid image. These works summarize, in their creation process and in their materials, other topics that emerge from Oreste’s research: salvation, care, change, creation. On the other hand, the documentary photography of the performance also becomes a performative act in the vibration of the creation that it is supposed to represent. It adds, once again, stratification and archeology to the matter of the scenic creation. Paris, Nuit Blanche, October 2nd 2021 Napoli, Museo della moda, June 2021
