Recently graduated in European Studies from University College London, I started taking part in theatre laboratories during my Erasmus in Bologna. I took part in several physical theatre laboratories and courses as well as in shorter workshops, among them Living Theatre and Chiara Guidi. Since then I’ve taken part in workshops in Italy, London and Spain exploring different performing traditions and meeting people from all around Europe with diverse understandings of what theatre is. Last year I started practicing Tanztheatre and next September I will be starting the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in Madrid. During the 2018 edition of Poverarte Festival in Bologna I had the idea of bringing together artists from all around Europe to create an international community of artistic exchange.
Biloura is an intercultural and transdisciplinary performing arts collective. It was born in 2013 when about 20 artists of diverse backgrounds and cultural roots where gathered by actress Silvia Ribero in Valchiusella, a valley of the Alps near Turin. Ever since, Biloura has worked as an international platform for performing arts research and production. Their performances have a unique language and are created from contemporary political and social issues. Their artistic projects, shows, workshops and roundtables have travelled worldwide, often through international residency programs. They joined forces with me for the organisation of CLASTIC after we met during one of their workshops in Poverarte Festival, where they were premiering their new show “Amarsiamorsi”.
