artist statement - nicoletta cappelllo

I am interested in processual forms and in working at the interface between different artistic disciplines as well as studying the common ground between Acting in Physical Theatre, Performance Art and Decolonial Pedagogy.

 

My artistic practice interrogates how to reposition the role of audience/learner's bodily creativity at the center of performance event through active movement-based participation.

 

I research in creating performative formats that serve as pedagogical spaces where audience/learner's imagination can meet their bodies at a deeper and expanded level, as a door, a playground, a map, a spaceship to step through into submerged realities.

I am attracted by poetics of transformation, the fact of becoming something else and transcending.

I love playing to infect reality with the super / powers of performance.

 

I believe in bodily imagination as a powerful tool in order to learn from others - humans and non-humans-, in order to resist politics of sublimations and extraction, and co-create sustainable futures.

Some of the elements, tools, inspirations and concepts that interact in my work, are:
