A white heavy sail is anchored horizontally on the ground with bolts. A group of adolescent play and sing a nursery rhyme improvising variations on the melody.

The Playground was produced for the LUM Prize, Teatro Margherita, Bari, curated by Stefano Chiodi, Caroline Corbetta e Giusy Caroppo.
“The work has as a poetic motive the resurfacing of memory, but at the same time it is linked to one of the unsolved socio-political crux of the city and to the general climax of the year 1991, connecting in this way the private and the collective sphere, past and present”.
