Barokthegreat’s performance is based on an audio-visual device that explore the relationship between a cinematic body and a real body placed one in front each other. This kind of relationship gives rise to an alienating journey of different thicknesses with physical and mental actions emphasized by the original soundtrack. 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 stargate, a threshold of dual becoming. Commissioned by Uovo Performing Arts Festival 2013 for a site-specific project on the two twin staircases that connect the spaces of the Milan Triennale to the space of theatre. Today 2023 The attack of the Clone reopens its dimensional passage, rejoining worlds and boundaries of action between the true and the false.
