I have always been interested in visual art as a source of inspiration in my choreographic practice. This is closely related to my own experience as the daughter of a sculptor and having studied art back home in Italy (Institute of Art Pino Pascali -Bari).
This particular drawing style reflects my connection to nature, movement (dance) and my fascination for facial expressions as a means to express individuality but also universal similarities between different people and cultures.
Floor patterns and feelings, I have experienced while dancing, are transferred on paper and used to dictate colours, moods and the direction in which a fantasy world can grow to hide and reveal facial expressions.
Connection with movement and dance is also apparent when looking at the relationship between the work and the viewer. These drawings encourage the spectator to take on an active role as they need to tilt and turn their heads to search for the many hidden faces. The multiple point of views gives spectators freedom of choice, as they can decide in which direction to hung the work depending on their personal taste and even change it over time.
