ROLO. A Performance by Wellington Dias

The performance “ROLO” took place within and without the MAXXI Museum in Rome on Sunday 16 November 2014, as part of the final event of Transnational Dialogues 2014.

Many thanks to Emanuela Stramenga (European Alternatives) who guided the performer through the streets of the Flaminio neighborhood, to Irene De Vico and all the curators at MAXXI Museum, and to all the public that confronted the heavy rain of a dark autumn afternoon and followed the performance until the very end.
