Robert Wilson and the Watermill Center take the stage for illy in the Triennale's gardens
A performance called "Noise Body" is pictured during the presentation of the Watermill Center, the new illy Art Collection at the Triennale's garden in Milan on September 2, 2014 .Robert Wilson is the artist who has shaped the latest illy Art Collection, coffee cups produced by illy. Inspiration for the collection comes from the Watermill Center, a laboratory for the arts and humanistic sciences founded by Robert Wilson in 1992 AFP PHOTO / GIUSEPPE CACACE.

MILAN.- On the occasion of the launch of the Watermill Center illy Art Collection, the new espresso cup collection curated by Bob Wilson and created by him together with the artists who revolve around the homonymous contemporary art workshop, illycaffè invited friends and special guests to an exclusive event to be held at Milan’s Triennale: Red Night, an evening of live performances by twenty young artists from twelve different countries.

Red Night was an evening of total immersion in the world of performance art and in the multidisciplinarity of shared creation which is at the base of the institution founded by Wilson in 1992, the same year illy launched the illy Art Collection.

“illy has been promoting contemporary art and young artists since its beginnings – said Andrea Illy, Chairman and CEO of illycaffè – we are proud of the collaboration with the master Robert Wilson and the Watermill Center of New York which has materialised into an exceptional collection of espresso cups and into the Red Night performance. The choice of the location purposely represents the continued collaboration with the Triennale, where we are creating a path made of coffee, art and sustainability that will lead us to the EXPO 2015 - of which illy is the Official Coffee Partner and will also be the curator of the Coffee Cluster, the exhibition’s coffee stand”.

Installations and performances by: Alex Berlage (Australia), Krystian Lyson (Poland), Annick Lavallée Benny (Canada), Christina Sotiropoulou (Greece), Alessandra Armenise (Italy), Francesca Fini (Italy), Fanny Lavergne (France), Mette Sterre (Netherlands), Doran Silek Patec (Slovenia), Paula Garcia (Brazil), Marianna Kavallieratos (Greece), Carlos Soto (USA), Christopher Knowles (USA), Gintare Minelgaite (Lithuania), Emma Tubbs (UK).

• Alex Berlage e Krystian Lyson – Third Face. Alex and Krystian explores the interaction between force and chance. The human figure engages in a dialogue with a foreign environment, confronted by the unpredictable and spontaneous force of the elements.

• Annick Lavallée – n.u.b.e. A cloud over a field made of porcelain.

• Christina Sotiropoulou – “86420b”. A series of still like sculptures in which the headpieces look like an armour. They are created from the repetition of the same feminine form/part in different sizes.

• Alessandra Armenise – Keep talking to me. A tribute to Scheherazade whois forced to tell stories in order to save her life, a woman is knitting incessantly her own prison.

• Francesca Fini – FAIR & LOST (in the woods). The performer is subject to electric shocks on both arms, causing strong involuntary muscle contractions, while trying to wear makeup and doing ordinary action in a reflection on beauty and national identity.

• Fanny Lavergne – The Rest of the Tales. A pillow-dress, worn by a strange woman who invites people to sit down beside her on the pillows. The dress is an occasion to share stories or short tales in an abstract way.

• Mette Sterre – Hummelmania. 5 rubberband creatures that typewrite their days away caught in an invisible office space, while their main leader wanders around his office unit without getting any work done. In this performance Mette Sterre questions the work ethics and power structures of office hierarchy in a playful manner.

• Mette Sterre – Structurealist. Inspired by the Fibonacci patterns in deep sea animals and crystal formations, Mette Sterre presents a new creature, developing a new body language for the non-human, grotesque body.

• Dorian Šilec Petek – Stabat Mater, passion. In depths of mind, hidden behind the Burkas lie mutilated faces of a woman who committed the crime of crossing Man’s self determined and self-important path. A reflection on attacks on women because of refusing sexual advances, proposals of marriage and demands for dowry.

• Christopher Knowles – House. Chants and nursery rhymes at sunset.

• Carlos Soto – My heart’s in my hand, and my hand is pierced, and my hand’s in the bag, and the bag is shut, and my heart is caught. The movement is quoted directly from concert footage of fans rushing onstage to kiss the singer Morrissey.

• Marianna Kavallieratos – On’. an action never finished, a word never ended ,a sound never heard On’ is a journey into everyones everydays meaningless tasks. The choreography uses Christopher Knowles Parsifal text as music.

• Paula Garcia – Noise Body. A body that is defined by a sum of three factors: precariousness, uncertainty and risk.

• Gintare Minelgaite and Emma Tubbs – De’Coy. A decoy is a person, device, or event meant as a distraction, to conceal what an individual or a group might be looking for. Decoys have been used for centuries most notably in game hunting, but also in wartime and in the committing or resolving of crimes.
