This is an essay about form written in a performance.
Taking the subject of the “new forms that will come”, the text is read by an orator activating the players to make specific movements or constructions, giving new ideas or possibilities of creation.

Below a brief extract of the text:

The origin of this essay about form written as a performance is to criticize the form, seeking to give new creative principles, and I’ve decided to do it in this way:
In a performance, where the word “form” is implicit in the word.
A performance that turns back to its origins: to insult, to bother, to provoke.
Not lot of people can say they have seen a performance which was not boring.
An essay, as Montaigne said, is a judgement, an experiment. Each single experience must have hypothesis, and the hypothesis has something fictitious.
The etymology of “fiction” comes from “fingere”, participle of “fictum”, which means to mold, to give form..
