To execute the word is an artistic research on the possibilities of language beyond its established limits and its capacity to generate new perceptual realities.  To execute the word is to kill it in the sense of detaching it from its conventional meaning and, at the same time, to put it into action, as happens with programming language.


This performance is a talk (without talking) about the “physics of the mental”, an exploration of the inner reality of words when they refer only to themselves, to their physicality related to sound, movement and light. Language singing its own prosody, objects pronouncing their own definition, the written world leaving its whispering trace, the body of words being touched and played. A glimpse into the parallels between physics and language and the intertwined behaviour of particles and words.

Language as score, instrument and performer at the same time.
