On urgency was created from 120 answers to surveys that we have diffused on the web and personally. We carried out a residency of 1 month in the spaces of Theater Expedition Metropolis and then presented a Preview and a full Performance during the HofFestSpiele, Community Art Festival organized by the same Theater.

To create this performance we developed a working method to translate the surveys into scenes, images, improvisations, music, texts, drawings.

We asked to the people: What is urgency for you now? Why? Where do you feel this urgency (where in your body, in your emotions, sensations)? How do you react? Can you use an image for your urgency? What are you ready for, now?

This performance and working method is aimed to be a sort of format, a working method that can travel and be brought in contact with specific urgencies, specific communities and territories.

If you want to hear more about it and/or discuss about a possible On Urgency project that can take place in your territory, in contact with a specific community/urgency, write to
