The Angular Distance of a Celestial Body

The Angular Distance of a Celestial Body by Alessandro Carboni

The Angular Distance of a Celestial Body is a reflection on the mapping process, which is seen as a reduced representation of the Earth’s surface and the events that occur on it. To reclaim the complexity of the world, Alessandro Carboni replaces the graphic signs used on maps with the body. On stage he places a geometric structure on the floor counterposed by two symmetrical bodies disguised in a montage of carnival inspired costumes. The actions of these figures lead, and are followed, by the soundscape, developing into an echo of the futile ambition to control the world.
