HaBima Theatre, Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv-Yafo,
Israel hosts the performances and happenings of Giuliano Ravazzini, symbolic contaminations that the artist regularly performs in significant and institutional places.
For this territory, full of history and social events, symbol of religious tensions and forced coexistence, the artist presented the concept Seed Granate, declining the idea in two distinct places: a sowing at the HaBima Theatre in Tel Aviv and the creation of graffiti in Bethlehem.
In this predominantly desert land, sowing is a gesture of defiance, affirms man's stubbornness to overcome the aridity of nature, nourishes the ancient dream of an eden where human beings can live in peace with the fruits of the earth.
The performance takes place in a crowded square of ground contested by neat flower beds, where flirtations of couples and children playing, participate in a living picture of humanity in which seeds are thrown with the property of rejoining past and future, adding up the ancient and always generative action of the sowing that now transcends its materiality, echoing in that floating virtual world that promises imperious memory.
In this land, promised, holy, contentious, where contrasts and differences coexist side by side, in which the very narrow spaces open glimpses into infinite inner, religious and divine worlds, rain down the artist's seed grenades that provocatively neutralize weapons, converting them into gestational seeds of a new world.
Ravazzini's intention is not to suggest those present intrigued and involved by the performance but rather to produce a non-violent happening that develops a narrative well rooted in reality, a necessary foundation for the narrative on the web.
A transmedia poetic spree that creates and testifies the actions in a real place and prepares their meanings narrating them in a non-physical reality where the perception of places and events is timeless, an eternal present, fertile and adapted to the germination of the Italian performer.
The Seed Granate project has a narrative strategy in "movement" that takes into account the image value, no longer as an icon or subject to contemplate, but instant visual message, significant that suspends the orthodox aesthetic canons and assumes on itself the values of the medium, a very interesting project that we can define polycontextual, dialogic, nomadic, ubiquitous, accumulative and mixed.
