BACKGROUND INFORMATION

This performance is based on a game my father and I used to play when I was a child. He used to drive our family car, and I only had to say "right'".... "left"...! It didn't matter how long our journey would take. Driving around like this we discovered new areas, and later in my life I realized that this game helped me to become a really relaxed and confident traveler: never in my life I have been afraid to choose an unknown path, and I still have the feeling that behind every unknown corner there is something special waiting for me.
