On Urgency*Nesting

On Urgency*nesting is an Artistic Research Project

by Marcozzi Contemporary Theater with the support of Theater Expedition Metropolis, Berlin.

Through an International Residency offered by Theater Expedition Metropolis,

On urgency*nesting will be one of the "Impulse Projects" performing in the HofFestSpiele, Community-Art Festival, that will take place in June 2021, in Berlin.

On urgency*nesting is aimed at exploring the relation that people have with the environment.

What personal and communal processes do we establish with the environment? How do we inhabit it and how does the environment host us? With the term environment we mean all types of places, spaces, sites, spots, landscapes, imaginary and real, tangible and intangible.

The project consists of distributing surveys to people both locally and internationally, asking them, asking to describe their relation to a specific place and the urgency that they may feel in relation to that place.

Inspired by the answers, the company will develop different narratives and outcomes, such as: theatrical incursions in the street, improvisational scores, musical compositions and a final performance.
