MP5 /

merda!

July 15 - 19

For the fiftieth edition of Santarcangelo Festival, MP5 salvages from the tradition of “Il saluto agli ospiti” (The greeting of guests), an artist poster which, in the past, was commissioned annually to visual artists, in parallel with the official poster of the Festival. Through essential symbolism, MP5 aims to arrive at the heart of the theatrical experience and restore its deepest spirit. A project that aims to talk about theatre in its most abstract form, a study of who and what constitutes theatrical practice, in which the representation of the public and that of the performers are mixed and confused. At the same time, an incoming tide that symbolises a presence which reclaims a space, the space that is often denied to operators in this sector.

BIO
MP5 is an Italian artist known for her incisive black and white drawing style that she uses from drawing to video animation, passing through muralism and installation. Her images refer to classical art, giving shape to a new mythology that underlies a critical and politically-engaged vision. Her works have been exhibited in museums and festivals including La Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome, La Condition Publique in Roubaix and the Théâtre National in Brussels.
