Dictatorships and school corporal punishments are the ingredients of this silent piece exploring the influence of institutions during the process of “coming out”.

The performer is on stage and kneels on hardened maize whilst looking to himself in a mirror.

The word “Sipario” is Italian for the theatre curtain that separates the actors from the audience.

“I personally experienced 10 minutes of this terrible punishment when I was at school. In this piece I’m going to try to extend these 10 minutes up to 6 hours.”
