B Motion -24 August, 2014

Does it make sense to reimagine a sport by performing it in a contemporary art context? What’s the intention behind moving a competitive game from its usual space into a theatrical one? Alessandro Sciarroni put these questions to himself and to the audience during a recent public presentation at Bassano, on the occasion of the B Motion Festival. Temporarily entitled “Playing with Goalball”, Sciarroni’s work is still in development. He is preparing it for his new show, which will premier in 2015. The focus is on a sport called “goalball”, which was invented for blind or visually-impaired athletes. Indeed, the sport is a paralympic game, and four paralympic athletes (in a competitive game there would be six) demonstrated how to play the game for the audience. We saw the discussion afterwards. Here is our radio feature on it.
