About this exposition

GLORIES TO NOTHINGNESS SORROW. MADNESS. NOTHING. A voice. A gesture. A beginning. An experiment. A sketch. A becoming. ... based on the story of a singer’s performance of paradoxes and passions in 17th century Venice. ... based on a singer’s research – performed in the 21st century – about the Art of Performing Everything and Nothing. GLORIES TO NOTHINGNESS is an artistic research project investigating performative acts of moving between Vocalizing ≈ Articulating ≈ Mattering ≈ Trusting. The research question: How to perform trust? Every movement, utterance, projection and articulation is consciously exploring and honoring Nothingness as an idea and a concept much debated at the time when the first public opera productions were performed in Venice around 1640. Based on a performative research approach and new materialist theories, performance acts are methodologically diffracted through musical fragments composed by Luigi Rossi (c. 1597 – 1653), Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) and Francesco Sacrati (1605-1650); through selected poems from the volume Le Glorie della signora Anna Renzi romana (Venice, 1641); through thoughts entangled with figures such as RESISTANCE, VULNERABILITY and TRUST; through the practice of exploring force and form as every day performative acts.
