The performance NeverStopScrollingBaby by the collective VITAMINA / Ferreri – Sedda – Vanhaverbeke is a continuous flow of information, a game of acceleration and hormonal impulses. With its first project, VITAMINA explores the dynamics that govern our hyperconnected and superfluid reality constantly in search of the sensational, the exhilarating and the revolutionary.
The result is a hypnotic experience designed to provoke, seduce and manipulate the viewer.
The VITAMINA collective is composed of Matteo Sedda, dancer and performer, Alessandra Ferreri who directs and Joshua Vanhaverbeke, sound and lighting design. The Italo-Belgian trio is characterised by its interest in popular culture and its online derivations, the representation of the obscene and manifestations of excess in all its forms. In VITAMINA’s work, trash becomes a fundamental aesthetic category, a key to understanding contemporary times.
