comunicato stampa

Scanner, Toute la mémoire du monde et Le Chant du styrène d’Alain Resnais
Film-concert (60 min.)

Scanner, a British musician and sound artist, recreates the musical world of two remarkable documentaries that Alain Resnais was commissioned to make in the 1950s. He has composed mesmerising electronic soundtracks to accompany these quasi-surrealistic films.

Monday, November 21, 8.30 p.m.


Cristian Chironi, Cutter + Ali Moini, My Paradoxical Knives
Performances (40 min. + 25 min.)

For this performance Italian artist Cristian Chironi takes old picture books and cuts them up, selecting images of natural objects threatened with extinction. He gathers together these images of animals, plants, glaciers, and ocean depths, then recombines them to create baffling new landscapes.
Ali Moini recreates the sacred dances of the Dervishes, adding a sense of danger: a man revolves on one spot, knives circling around him as he chants Sufi poems, begging the heavens not to keep turning without him.

Monday, November 28, 8.30 p.m.

Nomadic Nights Information and reservations every day, except Monday, from 11 p.m. to 8 p.m.
