A strange landscape emerges from an empty theater. Without  human action, a series of events is unleashed. The stationary scene is abruptly interrupted by artificial disasters. The scenography and the landscape collapses. As the shot continues, the remnants reappear, recomposed. Disasters (natural) are taken as metaphors of ruptures that prevent the narration of a coherent sequence. Through the dramatisation of the artificiality of nature, the term itself is reconsidered and reformulated from a scenographic perspective.
