Details

Taci likewise 'Be quiet'. The warning (both words and gesture, used and abused throughout the musical history of Italian opera) is addressed to... a person? A thought? An emotion? The audience? Oneself? In the era of the 'fragment', a breath surrounded by emptiness is the highest form of 'human' expression, representing man in the 'present moment', in his 'now', inevitably becoming intuition: a flash of illumination. As St. Augustine says in his writings, "...intuition (the present) lies between the past (memory) and the future (the infinite to come)". Since neither point exists, the moment-fragment may contain intuition, bringing it to life, making it perceptive... objectively subjective, and thus, in the expression of music theater, a collective subjectivity situated between references to past sounds and future expectations: the intuition of being now, all becoming one, the theater: universe. If the intact surface of a mirror represents a single entity (the audience), the action that shatters it - a gesture, a brief fraction of time - opens the work up to the numerous spaces which might be contained within it. Human objectivity becomes subjective, and is refracted. From the power of a single 'gesture', from word to orchestra, gestural art, theater..  comes the opportunity to realize the greatest possible concept in the minimum drama-space possible. The title, which is libretto, music, action, everything... is minimum drama. It is a sort of spiroid shape nourishing and developing itself through an additive theme. It becomes infinite and choral. Vision. Theater of silence.
