3/3 Tales of Exhaustion

The Game 
Screening and Q&A with Danilo Correale
Practical information: 
Saturday 5 March, 15.00-16.30

The Game is a three-sided corporate football match, a performance set up by the artist Danilo Correale, involving the employees of three historical companies of the Sienese territory: the crystal factory ColleVilca srl, the international metalwork corporation PR Industrial Srl and Trigano Spa, leader in Italy in the camper-van sector. The Game focuses on participation and on the ritual of an event beyond the classic schemes of antagonistic sports, standing as a metaphor to decipher human relations. In particular, Danilo Correale based his work on the theories of three-sided football, a game used as a tool to surpass the competitive spirit of traditional football, and foster a sense of aggregation and cooperation among the participants.
