(1978). Her work travels “between” choreography, cinema and visual arts. Since 2004, she has made pieces that explore the relationship with the spectator as the space in which the modes of representation are put into crisis. From “The Case of the Spectator” to her latest pieces, this relation has mutated from a place of “understanding” of theatrical and cinematographic conventions, that is, from the expertise, to the intentional loss of references where the artist, the piece and the spectator behave towards each other as strangers. She combines the production of her artistic work with educational, curatorial and editorial projects.

Alessandro Sciarroni
Alessandro Sciarroni

Alessandro Sciarroni is an Italian artist active in the performing arts, visual arts and theatrical research. He has presented his work in dance and theater festivals, museums, galleries and unconventional places, in important institutions and events around the world, among which Biennale de la Danse de Lyon, Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Brussels), Impulstanz stand out (Vienna), Festival d’Automne, Centquatre and Center Pompidou (Paris), Festival TBA (Portland), Biennale di Venezia, The Walker Art Center (Minneapolis) or Museo MAXXI (Rome).
His work goes beyond gender definitions – he uses the theatrical structure, but he can use techniques and experiences of dance, circus or sport, regularly involving professionals from different disciplines. In addition to rigor, coherence and clarity, it seeks to discover obsessions, fears and weaknesses in the act of interpreting, through the repetition of a practice up to the limits of the physical resistance of the interpreters, considering a different dimension of time and an empathic relationship between the audience and the artists.
