The Parma promoter said this “There will be a Taiko performance by Fudenji zen temple and a video installation by N03! (one of the best Italian video production studio) in the entry court before your show. The taiko performance at 21.00 and the video installation at 21.30.
The name of the video installation is “Finis Mundi”, which is the title of a book edited years ago by the owner of the Labyrinth, Franco Maria Ricci: http://www.ina.fr/video/CPC98002672
The book, written by Jorge Louis Borges, who was the director of Franco Maria Ricci publishing house, features illustrations by English artist John Martin (the illustration you can see in the poster is by John Martin).
The Labyrinth is not a concert venue, it’s a cultural complex. The creator and owner, Franco Maria Ricci loves to link the Labyrinth activities to his literary production. He is old now, but he is a great man of culture. He / his publishing house is very popular in France because in the 70s he reissued the Diderot and d’Alembert’s Encyclopédie. He is Commander of the Ordre des arts et des lettres.
In this case – since this year is the 30th anniversary of the death of Jorge Louis Borges – he just wanted to connect your show to this book curated and written by the Argentinian writer.”
