Wolves will be watching
Wolves Will Be Watching was originally created by Igor Urzelai and Moreno Solinas in 2015.- They generously gifted this piece to The Sparse Collective. Since then The Sparse embarked on a week of R&D in Sardinia at S’ALA Spazio Per Artisti (Sassari) where they started to re-invest themselves in the themes and concepts of the piece.
Wolves Will Be Watching explores the seductive and often oppressive influence of the mass media over our individual and collective identities and how this affects our desire to be seen by the outside world. Using our bodies to dance, to sing, to scream, to seduce, to protest and to provoke.
