AL13FB<3 rethinks rituals and questions social codes: formed, deformed and transformed by the body. The audience is lead through a poetic and futuristic landscape, where there is potential for magic. A lightsaber, dripping dye and crumpled foil become elements of Fernando Belfiore’s constantly renewing and transforming environment. As he shifts from sacred to profane, from pop to sci-fi, the physical experiences he constructs translate into surprising emotions for the audience.
