The Expedition began in Milan in a very small club called Porte Aperte in 1998. Three evenings, the same script with different musicians, a story of a team of anthropologists who explore an island looking for a lost tribe. The entire ecosystem of the island turns against them, and the tribe is never found. The musicians involved included Rhys Chatham, Giulio Capiozzo, Mamadi Kaba, Giancarlo Locatelli, Filippo Monico and many others.
The leitmotiv of the text was a line I actually found in a newspaper story about an expedition of anthropologists. “The worst part of the entire journey was when the island rats attacked our camp”.
