J’ai brûlé dans tes yeux. Je brûle 2017 at Museo d’arte contemporanea Napoli.
Inspired by the film Paris,Texas, J’ai brûlé dans tes yeux. Je brûle is a circular performance in the interstitial spaces of the Madre museum in Naples: a story of loss, of the ability to feel love but the inability to experience it. Starting from Wim Wenders’ film, in this site-specific performance written for the spaces of Palazzo Donnaregina, four couples meet in a non-place, haunted by their memories and tense about their uncertain future. The Sala delle colonne and the kitchens of the museum turn into the set for the rehearsals and performance. J‘ai brûlé dans tes yeux. Je brûle is a multidisciplinary project born between Naples and Paris from a collaboration between Kulturscio’k and La Casaforte S.B./Progetto Abitare l’arte with the patronage of the Goethe-Institut of Naples and the support of Fondazione Nuovi Mecenati, Institut français Napoli, Spedidam and Saxa Gres.
The photographic archive is part of the performance
The circular performance-installation, directed and written, by Alessia Siniscalchi, comes with installations by Valeria Borrelli and Antonio Sacco and the stage photography archive previously built with my photographs that turns into an installation of hundreds of printed pictures used by performers.
J’ai brûlé dans tes yeux. Je brûle
The performance is built on improvisations of actors and dancers. It was born during a creative residency in a rehearsal room in Montreuil, and then continued at the Goethe Institut in Paris in 2015 and at the spaces of La Casaforte S. B. in Naples in 2015 and in 2016 with the support of Institut Français Naples and the Matronage of Fondazione Donnaregina per le arti contemporanee di Napoli.
