4 - 7 November 2021, Collezione Maramotti

La Visita, a site-specific project by Peeping Tom commissioned and produced by Fondazione I Teatri in partnership with Collezione Maramotti and with the support of Max Mara, will premiere on Thursday 4 November 2021 at 8:30 pm at Collezione Maramotti in Reggio Emilia. Presented as part of the Aperto Festival, there will be repeat performances on Friday 5 November, at 8:30 pm, Saturday 6 November, at 4 and 7 pm, and Sunday 7 November at 4 pm. For years now, museums and art galleries have played an important role in the surreal, perturbing work of Peeping Tom: their performance Moeder (2016) was set in a space that became a maternity ward, funeral home, recording booth and art gallery, as if the whole of life were presented there for everyone to see. For the spaces of the Collezione Maramotti, choreographer Gabriela Carrizo has taken the opposite approach, bringing the theatrical work of Peeping Tom inside a contemporary art collection.

The protagonists of La Visita – which appear to include members of the Collezione Maramotti staff, such as guards and cleaning personnel – move through the exhibition space and interact with the art; at the same time, the artworks seem to spring to life along with the characters who inhabit them. Viewers are gradually led into a parallel world where the museum, a place entrusted with preserving things over time, must deal with what is ephemeral and transitory. The audience too must rise to the challenge, posing themselves the task of distinguishing reality from fiction, art from everyday life. In the same week (on 6 November at 8:30 pm and 7 November at 6 pm), Peeping Tom will also be at Teatro Municipale Valli – again, as part of the Aperto Festival – to present another of the Belgian company’s most important works, Triptych: The missing door, The lost room and The hidden floor. In this trilogy, cinematically constructed as if it were a live montage, Carrizo and Chartier explore their characters’ inner worlds and summon up a disturbing, claustrophobic universe.

Tickets can be purchased at and at the Teatro Municipale Valli ticket office (check opening hours at .Any tickets that remain available will be for sale at Collezione Maramotti, starting one hour before the performance time.
