Live Art

I am still new at this. So be patient. I am gathering all what years of procrastination layered in my hard drive!

Since the turn of the new century, I have been actively seeking and I have been offered collaborations within the fields of live art.

In particular, I am fond of Butoh Dance. It challenges my reflexes and heightens my senses. A butoh dancer reaches depts of improvisation that rarely I have witnessed. I mesmerise like in front of a painting, life pure paint stratifying moving under heat; ok, it is a bit of a poetic metaphor, though it resembles the truth of the butoh process.

I have lit Ken Mai, Iwashita Toru, Bridget Scott,  Ambra G. Bergamasco, Paul Michael Henry, Yuri Dini, Natsuko Kono, Yumiko Yoshioka, Minako Seki and Masaki Iwana during the last few years of the Moving Bodies Festival in both Dublin and Torino.

This photo of Ken Mai performing with Shiraz was taken by the talented Darya Spivakova during the Moving Bodies Festival 2016 in Torino. I have added more pictures from Festivals here.
