Giuseppe Chico and Barbara Matijević, present the Italian premiere of the last part of the trilogy ‘The theory of the performance to come, or the only way to avoid the massacre is to become its authors’

With Forecasting, presented at the latest Avignon Festival, the artists Giuseppe Chico and Barbara Matijević, a duo of extraordinary expressivity, present the Italian premiere of the last part of the trilogy ‘The theory of the performance to come, or the only way to avoid the massacre is to become its authors’, after the success they were met with at Uovo 2010 with I am 1984 and Tracks.
In this new piece the focus is shifted from the past to the future, the validity and meanings of which are challenged by the mechanisms of consumer society. By employing witty narrative techniques which play with the coexistence and juxtaposition of contents, this funny and intriguing performance provokes the audience to think about the transformations imposed by the internet and digital era on our physical habits and mental processes.
