Commissioned by Uovo Performing Arts Festival for a site-specific project on the two staircases that connect the spaces of the Milan Triennale to the space of theatre. This unique Barokthegreat’s creation builds on audio-visual device that explore a close relationship between filmed body and real body. This kind of relationship gives rise to an alienating journey of phases to pass throught with physical and mental actions. Inspired by science fiction stories and simulation games, which bridge the gap between reality and the imagined future. The golden frame of the Clone's attack is a gate of the stars, a passage for the meeting of two people.
