TAKING INSPIRATION FROM SCOTT WALKER'S CLASSIC SONG “FARMER IN THE CITY” (1995) - A PIECE ITSELF ISPIRED BY THE POEM “ONE OF THE MANY EPILOGS” (1969) WRITTEN BY PIER PAOLO PASOLINI TO HIS LOVER - ONE OF THE MANY EPILOGS: A FARMER IN THE CITY CELEBRATES THE OBSCURE JOY OF CITY LIFE, IN BOTH ITS ECSTASY AND SOLITUDE. 

AN INTIMATE RE-INTERPRETATION OF MARTIN AND DARIO'S JOURNEY SIDE BY SIDE AS ARTISTS, LOVERS AND FRIENDS.
