Jacopo Miliani – Burning Desire


Dot Dot Dot became boing boing boing
A group of suspended objects.
Three spheres rolling in the air, they look motionless.

A ball is always still in between the fall and the bounce.

Throwing a Ball…will many people come?

I am looking
You are looking

Gaze on me

My head is upside down
My back lies on a Pilates balloon
This position will affect my thinking

Your hands move like lilies
Blooming movements
Flourishing moment

Instinctive feelings are written on a wall in black spray
Thinking they will last forever but they go, like in a Lana del Rey song.
“I’m driving fast, flash, everyone knows it”

Performance in collaboration with Yanou Ninja.
