On Urgency*Nesting explores the relation that people have with the environment.

With the term environment we mean all types of places, spaces, sites, spots, landscapes, imaginary and real, tangible and intangible.

What personal and communal processes do we establish with the environment?

How do we inhabit it and how does the environment host us?


We build a nest and bring the garbage outside.

We plant trees within the nest’s borders. 

We cross through the forest, sounding and listening  to its shape.

Birds arrive, curious about humans and hungry for the leftovers.

We build the nest to access the dynamics that are other than human: the supra human energy of the environment, the unending movement of the sea.

The materials of the nest, its borders, even the names we give to its parts and qualities, shift, break apart, disperse and reassemble.

The project On Urgency*Nesting is the direct follow-up of Daniela Marcozzi’s research project The Urge of Being followed by the MCT company research project's On Urgency- pilot project and performance, through which we developed a method of composing and distributing surveys, collecting people’s answers and transposing them into artistic narratives using performative tools.
