The School Narrative Dance, Roma

Founded in 2013 by Marinella Senatore, The School of Narrative Dance is a long-term project. It is “focused on the idea of storytelling as an experience that can be explored choreographically, on non-hierarchical learning, self-training and the creation of an active citizenship through informal education. Nomadic and free of charge, the School takes different forms depending on the spaces it temporarily occupies, and proposes an alternative system of education, based on emancipation, inclusion, and self-cultivation” as the artist herself says. Further, the idea of “narrative dance” suggests different possibilities of narration, and therefore of perceiving and defining reality.

Bonajo occupies a unique position in contemporary art and has developed into a wayward artist who works in various disciplines including photography, video, installations, publications, performance and music. Never, since the start of her career, has Bonajo fitted into any of the artistic pigeon holes. Particularly striking are her anarchist streak and her energetic ability to escape from social conventions. (more…)

BILLION BALANCES. LGG$B solo show curated by IDIOLETTA

Talking about foot bathing with friends, we came to the conclusion that this strictly feminine practice of laying one’s feet into saltwater, comes from mermaids. Feet – the human equivalent of the fish’s tail – must reconcile with their original environment: saltwater, indeed.
Definitely odd, this theory was useful to me over time, to explain a series of phenomena that, otherwise, would have just appeared alien – inscrutable.
