Io esco is a performance to walk through. A staging to be inhabited. A dramaturgical thread that puts in dialogue the works of a photographer, two illustrators, a videomaker, a sound designer, and a theater company. A hybrid, amphibious device capable of inhabiting unconventional spaces. What is home for a boy and a girl today? There is no one answer. Everyone has their own. Intimate and private. Where do a boy and girl feel at home within their city? In what places? What are the places they frequent? What are they looking for?
Io esco draws within the city a map that does not consider logics of viability, building coefficients, or the percentages of particulate matter in the air. An emotional map that tells when the city welcomes. When it rejects. Io esco places our footsteps side by side with those of a group of girls and boys to record the rhythm of their soles, where they stop, where they speed up, where they jump, and where it is possible to take off their shoes to put on a pair of slippers.

Babilonia Teatri is a formation which stepped decisively into the world of contemporary theatre, standing out for its multiple-voiced language, often defined as pop, rock, punk. The founders of the group, Enrico Castellani and Valeria Raimondi, compose strutting plays, sorts of litanies sculpted out of the contradictions of today, brought on stage with a rebel’s attitude. They have explored various corners of provincial life, crystallising it as a microcosm of universal pain, to be taken on with sacrilegious courage, touching the open nerves of our times. Courage that was worth a Leone d’Argento at the last Biennale of Venice. Babilonia Teatri is known for its irreverent and divergent views of today.
