Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion (UK/IT)

Cheap Lecture


The Cow Piece

18 March Teatro dell’Arte


running time  1 hour

performance in english


A long-awaited return after their groundbreaking performance at the first edition of Uovo. Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion come back to Milan with their two most recent works, continuing their questioning journey through dance and music, composition principles and limitations, attitude to performance and audience. Cheap Lecture, selected for the 2009 ‘best of the year’ at the prestigeous Het Theaterfestival in Brussels, is a rythmic spoken performance set to music. This manifesto of the duo’s poetics, veering from the philosophical to the humorous and bac, is followed by The Cow Piece, a widly comical meditaation upon dance, music and mortality. It’s theater at it’s most eccentric, astonishingly clever and absurdly humorous.
