Dealing with the cultural performances as points of view of the contemporaneous social contest asks for the usage of complex theoretic frames, based on the mélange logical. On this base it’s possible to take into account the multi-causality and the existence of social stages in which in the society-world is visible the rising of several forms of individual and collective expressiveness. Such a dynamics of communication and performance has a shared ancestral and anthropological source, but is based on the cultural platforms of the collective contemporaneous imagery. Thus considering the forms of communication means coming back to the primary fury that marks the beginning of the social formations and the meaning of the ritual processes as a way of symbolical elaboration of violence. In addition it means tracing the social and communicative development in the artistic practices and medial performances, the ambivalence between tradition and innovation, nature and culture, rational and irrational, life and death, putting in evidence the duplicity which the hypothesis of hope rising from the Michel Serres’ lesson is based on.
