 w/ Ilaria Vergani Bassi

THIS PROJECT is a performative research of dance and visual arts through the symbolic and semiotic language of human behaviour and the use of light as a magical hypnotising device. Luxfera creates iconographic images, makes the audience firmly believe in what they see, then destroys these images by dismantling every certainty installed. A liturgical sequence that leads to a ritual that exorcizes every illusionistic construction and brings back to a carnal and animalistic but futuristic dimension. Luxfera makes us realise that we have placed our faith in the illusion that manipulates our perception.

Idea & creation: Ilaria Vergani Bassi
