“Bang bang” di Umberto e Stefano Cinquini

"Nell’America che ha eletto Donald Trump nuovo Presidente degli Stati Uniti c’è chi si batte per la difesa del diritto costituzionale e al porto delle armi da fuoco. Ma le conseguenze ce la racconta la cronaca con il lungo elenco di delitti o di incidenti per l’uso domestico di pistole e fucili. Come se fossimo in un moderno Saloon del Far West Donald Trump è, per i costruttori, il simbolo di tutto ciò."

(Carnevale di Viareggio, 2017)

The Sultan's Elephant: Disrupting The Spectacle Of Everyday Life

"If art is about transformations, there is no more transforming experience than The Sultan's Elephant, a large–scale outdoor free spectacle produced by French company Royal de Luxe. This is a show that disrupts the spectacle of everyday life and transforms the city from an impersonal place of work and business into a place of play and community. It does something very simple and important: it makes you feel incredibly happy and it gives you permission to let your imagination take flight. It turns us all into beautiful dreamers with silly grins on our faces."
