Gut Reaction- Experi-Mental Theatre- Live Painting Performance


4Moods is a pièce inspired by the book “The Curious incident of the dog in the night time” written by Mark Haddon. The show is a personal interpretation of the story; the concepts led the duo in the composition of the scenes and the music dramaturgy. The book is written from the perspective of a 14 year old boy with Asperger’s syndrome (a form of autism) that, becoming a “detective” in the hunt for the murderer of a dog, is conducting an investigation in a personal growth and realization. The author doesn’t focus on the problems of autism, but on the reality seen with those eyes.

 Likewise the Gut Reaction decided to live the stage. Using the expressive language of the body and rhythm,a series of seemingly disconnected situations are proposed with the aim to evoke the most varied, personal and unexpected images in the mind of the audience. Created and performed by Giulia Mandelli & Marco RivagliPerformed in duo, trio or quartet with the participation of the guitarist Emanuel Victor and the live painter Merav Leibkuechler.
