Action featuring 25 performers and students from the School of Art, Catholic University of Chile, Santiago. In one of the gathering plazas within the university campus, the performers will suddenly surprise the audience by performing simple body movements and using a specific sequence of breathing that becomes more and more pressing until the performers themselves enter a phase of hyperventilation, similar to what is practiced by millennia-old yogic experiences, until exhaustion, or reaching an altered state of consciousness. Only contact with the earth will bring back control over the body, but of an energy scenario that will be completely changed.
REMOTO project, 2022
REMOTO is a research project by Francesco Di Tillo which started from the invitation for an artistic residence by Galeria Metropolitana, historical independent space in Santiago de Chile. The project is realized thanks to the support of the Italian Council (10th edition, 2021) a programme fostering the international promotion of Italian art as part of the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture, to the cultural partners Centex-Centro de Extensión del Ministerio de las Culturas, las Artes y el Patrimonio di Valparaiso e Escola de Arte, Faculdad de Artes, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile de Santiago and the collaboration of NOS Visual Arts Production.
