Since ancient times March has always been the month of the war; the Winter fades away and the blooming of the Spring sets time to return to the battlefield. On a distant planet lies the remains of an impact crater. Its walls have eroded and its whiteness doesn’t allow you understand its dimensions. Within it, some people, seen as if microbes under the searching eye of a microscope, live a drama which seems to contain all the hostility held within the crater. A hostility that happened billions of years earlier. From the planet Earth we see them, and the space which runs between us is so vast it dilates time. Thus, we can’t define a date, a geological age. If they look at us they would see only dinosaurs on an Earth from the past. Alone, as Galileo saw the planets moving for the first time, we look at these people and find familiarity; we can see them as ancient progenitors. Inside the crater March has arrived. There exists an ambiguous and disorientating force that, in the most absolute way, contains within itself the spectrum of human emotion.
DEWEY DELL (ITA) Dewey Dell was formed in Cesena in 2007 by Agata, Demetrio, Teodora Castellucci and Eugenio Resta. They have strong skills in different areas. This took each of them to give priority to a specific aspect of the work, without giving up a collective modeling of materials. Since 2007 Dewey Dell is part of Fies Factory and from 2013 is supported by apap – advancing performing arts project. The name Dewey Dell is a tribute to Faulkner and to the young girl of “As I lay dying”.
KURO TANINO (JAP) Born in Toyama Pref. in 1976. He is a playwright, director of the theater company Niwa Gekidan Penino and ex-psychiatrist. His company’s works are created based on his imagination and obsessions and staged out with carefully designed details.
YUICHI YOKOYAMA (JAP) Born in Miyazaki in 1967. He has worked as a cartoonist since 1995 and besides his activity as comics designer he is also a visual artist with colorful painting and drawings. He is an isolated artist who is highly regarded in the art scene both in Japan and overseas.
