Perception of Self

Andrigo & Aliprandi’s
multidisciplinary collaborative practice focuses on the perception of the Self
to favour shifting from comfort zones to places unknown yet — those invisible places where the performer
needs to stand on the alert to trigger the creative act.
There where perceptual stimuli and
physical activity lead to space transformation, to tune the body and its
movement to sounds, so that it may generate actions, which in turn give rise to
meaningful evocative images.
The body is a sparkling matter always
ready to get through and react, sourcing from its biomechanical energy. The
mind is the observer that interprets. The emotion is a vehicle of intuition.
dialectic between strength and lightness, consumption and recovery, surface and
depth, synthesis and abundance, limit and possibility, the open invitation of
Andrigo & Aliprandi is to dive into visions and dreams, letting the body
re-emerge as their signifier.
We will share knowledges and experiences
through physical and concrete practices to recognize together the infinite ways
to read origins and destinations that turn a gesture into poetic acts.
We will be dedicated to repetition,
durability and real-time composition.
We will accept the lightness and extravagance
of the act so as not to fall into self-referentiality.
We will allow intuition as a result of a
receptive capacity facing outward.
and performer Marianna Andrigo and multimedia artist and sound performer Aldo
Aliprandi have been collaborating since 2009. Their oeuvre and artistic research intertwine various performative
languages, deepening the relationship between body movement and sound-motion.
Andrigo & Aliprandi's live performances are mainly conceived site-specific,
often in places characterized by the full verticality and the consequent shiver
of vertigo that it produces. In their reference landscape, they move
between philosophy, theatre, sound and movement experimentation by
investigating an aesthetic that falls in love with detail and silence, as well
with an entropic dynamic energy moved by emotions as enlightenment in the
creative process. They are the directors of C32 performingartworkspace at Forte Marghera, Venice, venue and co-organizator of the ART WEEK | WORKSHOP SERIES since 2013.

those who doubt that they are always responsible, but still look for their own
tools to not be subdued by themselves. For those who feel their identity always
moving and becoming confused with matter and habits, human, urban and natural

perception of the surrounding.

becomes a space of action.
those who dedicate themselves to silence and slowly wait until the body adheres
to the present. For those who indulge in the space where movement is a source
that charges, preserves, and sets yourself free.
those who accept the emotion as a place of integrity and not of slippage.
word, writing are organization tactics without premeditation to offer, to
abstain, investigating the visible and the invisible.
