In “Yellow Fever” the experience of the architectural setting of Barakaldo’s Stadium is narrated from different perspectives in order to give the audience the perception of a shared space.
Francesco Monaco and Simone Muscolino collaborate on a short film to recreate the everyday life of Eduardo Arroyos’s architecure (NO.MAD Arquitectos) by exploring the interactions and the stories that take place in a this kind of public space. Its multi-colored seats, the locker rooms, every corner inside and outside the stadium slowly unfolds in stop motion, until the final climax where the spectacular atmosphere of the game is reconstructed and finally perceived in its entirety.
Eventually a joyful and primitive scene is played out, as long as the project itself embodies the primeval human need for a collective space . Spectators invade the playing area and literally take possession of a place that is designed for their use. In myriad ways, the audience has virtually taken back this wide playground through the images and the narration of the film, learning “how to get back to nature by kicking a ball around...”
