A woman sits in a museum gallery and observes a painting. Near the door a man stands and watches the scene.
This is the starting point for the new project from La Veronal, which takes us to the Italian city of Siena to initiate a reflection on the conception of the human body. The human body represents and has represented the passing of the centuries, and art has involved itself with human material in as many ways as it has found convenient, while artists have used the body as a container and projector of meanings. The piece is an exploration of the history of Italian art, in a journey that begins in the Renaissance, when humankind recovered its self-awareness, and finishes in the modern world.
In this new work La Veronal continue to draw on references from other artistic disciplines such as cinema and literature. In this respect, Pasolini“s work, linked so strongly to everything human, has also served as inspiration for the construction of a disturbing essay about the centrality of the body on stage, also supported by the language of El Conde de Torrefiel, regular collaborators with La Veronal.
