Since February 2017, Palais de Tokyo has regularly been presenting performances with experimental and hybrid formats. On March 23rd, it was presented Scholomance by Nico Vascellari, a show that combined performance and sound effects which allowed public to immerse in the artist’s environment. The Scholomance evening was perceived as a real adventure: occult nature, hidden woodland, weir wolves, black magic and shamans, all rebuilt thanks to a large and captivating installation. The work explored the mysteries of nature and the secrets of animal language, providing one of the possible interpretations of the origins of the world.
