In order to comply with the Government's requirements for the containment of Covid-19, the performance will be held in the museum spaces, and attendance is by invitation only.

The Museo Archivio Laboratorio per le Arti contemporanee Hermann Nitsch is unique among the Campania Region’s Museums. It is a space for documentation and in-depth study of the philosophical, poetic and visual themes developed by the great Austrian artist, Hermann Nitsch (Vienna 1938) in over thirty years of activity. It is a multifunctional space where the works of art, the wrecks from the actions of the famous Orgien Mysterien Theater (Theatre of Orgies and Mysteries) which characterised Viennese Actionism in the sixties, journeys through odour and colour, and excursions into astronomy and botany come to life along a pathway always open to experimentation.
