During the experience of the project Migrant Bodies, between 2014 and 2015, the artist develops an idea for a new performative practice that is deeply germinal. Starting from the observation of the migration flows of some animals that at the end of their life return to spawn and die in their natal territory, the artist began working on the concept of turning. The english term is translated and represented on stage in a literal sense, through the action of the body rotating around its axis: the action develops into an emotional psychophysical journey, a dance of duration, in the same way in which turning also means to evolve, to change.
The TURNING project is divided into different presentations and events that the artist calls versions.
CHROMA_don’t be frightened of turning the page is the solo version directed and interpreted by Alessandro Sciarroni himself, borrowing the title and subtitle respectively from Derek Jarman’s book of colours and from an album by Bright Eyes, the artist’s favourite rock band.
