Dalla Z alla A site-specific performance

A long awaited new work I presented last saturday, 21st September at  Centro studi Villa Bighi.
So happy to have created this piece working on site, at the beautiful villa, once a home to Italian designer and artist Dante Bighi. Great to learn more about his versatile work and explore both the interior of the house and its garden, a little forest.
Upon my first visit of the place I had no idea what was to come out of it. As I started working on site, it became a 15 minute piece about mosquitoes, slides, coffee, circles and ships. A variety of aspects of the villa were explored in some way, some of the past, some belonging to the present.
Many thanks to Rossella Fabbri, who performed by my side, Giacomo Natali who put the soundtrack together and Daniele Mantovani for coming to take photographs. Here are some of them.
Thanks to the team at Villa Bighi for their support.

Performance Fatta in Casa - Homemade Performance

Up to now, three artists have brought a piece of their life and work to our home. They all chose to create their short piece based on something from their home, which was not in any planned, but I found it worked great with the concept of a homemade performance.
Many many thanks to all artists, to a great audience always, also surprisingly coming in the right numbers. Somehow, things work great at home!
Home sweet home

A new performance

Last Thursday, 25th of July, I had the pleasure of creating a one-off performance for body, guitar and voice (project by Alessandra Fabbri) with Alessandra Fabbri and Giacomo Marighelli. At Meridiana, Lido di Spina.
Got to recite in Bulgarian as well (super rare) and really enjoyed collaborating with the artists! Special thanks to the organiser, Alessandra Zerbinati, and for the photos to Daniele Mantovani.

Homemade performance. Performance fatta in Casa

Recently having moved to a beautiful new apartment in the centre of Ferrara with a spacious living room, that's currently a very flexible space given the very little, essential furniture we have. What's the best way to use it? Well, performance of course!

Very late updates. Late updates. Updates nonetheless.

Long time no write...
This blog started as an artistic diary back in my MA days at Wimbledon College of Art. Back then updates were in real time, or at least almost. Now updates are a bit late, or a little more than just a bit late.
Still, I find it useful to keep track online on what I do. 
So almost a year ago, and that is an update, precisely in October 2012, I took part in a contact improvisation festival in Crete, teaching two mini workshops, developing, with the help of participants, my work on the senses.
Definitely a great place for the senses.
