The performance: PEZZI is a mainly vocal collective action. At the beginning the performers are lying on the ground on the back. Their position is composed, the bodies spaced apart from each other without contact, scattered in space as individual pieces. After a prolonged initial silence, each performer starts to sing a song: first by singing it only in the mind, then on the lips, then with a whisper, in unison with the other performers. Gradually the song takes more volume, until the full voices of all fill the space with their intensity. Shortly after the apex, the song is suddenly interrupted and everything returns to silence, to then resume from the beginning.
