Elisabetta Consonni

She choreographs everything, human and inhuman beings, mobile and immobile objects, maps,

interstices and spatial holiday groups. She weaves networks of relationships, subtle and strong,

like sugar glass. Graduated in Communication with a final thesis on the social construction of the body in dance and graduated from The Place-London, she then deepened her research in performing art living in Holland (2004-2009) and Poland (2013-2015). Her works for conventional spaces aim to expand the practice of choreography seeking for performative devices to incorporate a social discourse. Her activism in the social and civic sphere, takes the artistic form of a research process named Ergonomica that since 2013 investigates the use and social meaning of public space and the decline of choreographic skills in working with marginalised groups. Her work searches for the continuous interlacing between practice and production of knowledge through it. Her works has been produced by Teatro Grande di Brescia (IT), Centro Nazionale della Danza Virgilio Sieni (IT), Ariella Vidach, Konfrontacje Teatralne (PL), Biennale Danza Venice (IT), Orlando Festival (IT), Pergine Festival (IT) and presented at International Dance Theater Festival Lublin(PL), Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (NL), Biennale Danza di Venezia (IT), PIA Palazzina Indiano Arte (IT), Cantieri Culturali Isolotto (IT), Cango (Italy), Zona K (IT), Indisciplinarte Terni (IT), Prague Quadriennale (CZ), Fog Festival (IT), In/Visible Cities (IT), New Generations Festival of Architecture. www.elisabettaconsonni.com
