Based on Munari’s text Good Design (1998), Adagio represents a collection attempt to construct a moment in which the present is infinite, celebrating the orange as an almost perfect object.
In this era of selfies, smartphones and consumerism, we are all living an attempt to freeze time, unaware that we are thus distancing ourselves from the moment we would like to preserve. Adagio is a choral attempt at anchorage in the present.
40 performers will occupy a defined and circumscribed space-time as they search for the essence of the everyday, in a gesture, a contemplative action that breaches the threshold of the imagination.
