Chiara Bersani e Marco D'Agostin

About C.

(b. 1984) Chiara is an Italian artist working in the performing arts. Her formative path takes place mainly in the field of theatrical research with influences from contemporary dance and performing art. Suffering a moderate form of Osteogenesis Imperfecta, she is interested in the political meaning that a body can just take with its own image when interacting with the society. As an outcome of this considerations took place the inquiry path on the Political Body, started in 2013 and divided into Goodnight, peeping Tom (performances for 5 spectators ), Miracle Blade (Film), Tell Me More (performance with a chorus of 8 male voices). The collaborations with other artists and organizations are one of the key features of her artistic career. Among the most durable collaborations are those with Marco D’Agostin, Matteo Ramponi, Babilonia Teatri, Alessandro Sciarroni and the cultural association Corpoceleste_C.C.00#. Other major collaborations were with the Madrid-based company La Tristura, with the French choreographer Jérôme Bel and with the Argentinian director and playwright Rodrigo Garcia.

About M. 

Marco D’Agostin is an artist active in the fields of dance and performance.

After a disjointed education with internationally reknown masters (Claudia Castellucci, Yasmeen Godder, Nigel Charnock, Rosemary Butcher among others), he strengthens his skills both as performer (working for Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio, Alessandro Sciarroni, Tebea Martin, Liz Santoro among others) and maker (his work receives several international acknowledgements and has been touring in Europe since 2010).

His poetics is fluid, dinamic, constantly adapting.

At the moment it resonates with visions from atlases, books by M. P. Shiel, catalogues of extinct creatures and iconographies generated by videos on Youtube.
The choreographic devices he creates pay debt to the lesson that italian poet Amelia Rosselli gave about writing: “Concerning metrics, being it free it used to vary according to associations or to my own pleasure. Annoyed by preset schemes, overflowing from them, it used to adapt to a tempo that was psychological, musical and instinctive”.
