A disturbing animal nature with dark motivations attacks man with the precision of machines. A cohesive organism that thinks as a mass and that overturns the familiar categories with which humans order the world. Black and white, birds of prey or small birds become the narrative voice in Roberto Scarpetti’s original adaptation. Written in 1952, Gli uccelli (The birds) speaks to us, with the foresight typical of science fiction, of ecophobia, of a changed climate, of a black winter and of an apocalypse that comes from the sky. For Attraversamenti Multipli 2024, Gli uccelli can be listened to, divided into chapters, among the ruins of the Torre del Fiscale park. A layered listening where the active and out-of-control nature of The Birds takes shape in an unprecedented body of sound that mixes the narrative voices and musical dramaturgy with the sounds and noises of the park.

The spectacular version in the form of a multimedia melody for voices, music and images of The Birds was presented during IF /Invasioni (dal) Futuro_New Era*2022.
