I DIE LIKE A COUNTRY is a walking performance by the internationally awarded artist Gemma Hansson Carbone. This project, which crosses archeology, hiking, performing arts and poetry is structured around a text written by the contemporary poet Dimitris Dimitriadis and the figure of the Angelus Novus that Walter Benjamin described in his homonymous essay, dated 1961.
I DIE LIKE A COUNTRY is a punk-liturgical experiment designed to evoke the advent of the Angel of History.
The performance appears to be a sci-fi metaphor, with archaic elements, of a society that has lost itself, and which is tirelessly walking forward, in the hope and in the search of a Future.

Participants: 20 people

Duration: 40/45 minutes max
Needs: Personal smartphone with mobile data and personal headset. Participants without a mobile data plan in Europe can use a shared connection.

Please note: the participants will be mailed with the necessary instructions, the map of the walking itinerary and technical assistance prior to the performance!
Registration by email is required in advance.

A public rehearsal with limited participation will be organized on Friday July 8 at 7 PM. The public performance takes place on Saturday July 9 at 8 PM.
