The performing arts – the territory in which we operate with Sciami|ricerche – is a field in which the social and artistic share a space, in which a community finds itself together in a perceptive, acoustic, visual, tactile experience. If it is true that Walter Benjamin’s assumption that the new “collective innervations” of the sensory organs can open up very powerful processes of liberation – starting from the pre-eminence of cooperation, horizontality, connections – then the performative artistic action can bring about act a collective practice that undermines (or affirms) apparatuses and ideologies, provided that artistic and political dramaturgies mutually feed and interact.
