La notte è il mio giorno preferito is a reflection on the relationship with the Other through a meditation on animals and the ecosystems in which they live.
The show takes its cue from the practice, outlined by Baptiste Morizot in the essay Sur la piste animale, of philosophical tracing: the exercise of following the trails crossed by wild animals in an attempt to borrow their gaze and imagine their possibilities of action, following the ontological position of perspectivism formulated by the anthropologist Eduardo Viveiros de Castro.
The animal and the vegetable, the organic and the inorganic merge in the dark space of the nocturnal forest; landslides and calls break the quiet. Signals and mysterious perceptive instruments, inspired by different species, constitute the connective tissue.
A forest neither virgin nor idealized, but technonatural, which includes and transforms the signs left by its inhabitants.
The title La notte è il mio giorno preferito (The night is my favorite day), taken from a letter by Emily Dickinson, refers to the darkness as a space of the absent presence of the animal, as a place of intuition.
