Opera Viva is an interactive project by Elisa Zadi which involves the live performance of an opera with four hands. The artist and the portrait will confront each other to create an image that can represent their face. The work will take place in the complicity of the moment and thanks to the participation of the public. Elisa does not perform the classic portrait in which the participant is a passive spectator, but involves him in this intervention, in the comparison, in the relationship, in painting. A special tilting structure will be arranged between the two participants which will now show a mirror now the pictorial support and the two will intervene on it alternately, triggering the beginning of what will later be Opera Viva, that is an interactive artistic intervention aimed at the relationship. and to the creation of an experimental and shared pictorial artefact.
