Venice Biennale - The 50th International Theatre Festival - College Teatro 2022: The Winners of the Call for a site-specific performance
The Japanese-American performer, singer and composer Aine E. Nakamura and the French performer, dramaturge and photographer Antoine Neufmars are the winners of the Biennale College Teatro grants for site-specific performances. Their projects, conceived for the outdoor spaces of Venice, will be presented at the 50th International Theatre Festival (June 24 - July 3). Aine E. Nakamura's Under an Unnamed Flower is a transborder project - in the words of Stefano Ricci and Gianni Forte - "by virtue of a melodic use of the voice, of an original process of deconstructing and reconstructing language, of freeform figurations and three-dimensional words that without prejudice reach across the boundaries of Theatre, Dance and Music, bouncing us within a poetic vortex of light, that spills forth visions, dreams, memories, colours and feelings, catapults us..."

"The 2022 Stückemarkt Selection - What is the future worth (to us)? Five innovative young artists and collectives have approached this question from different angles and won over the jury with their aesthetically and substantially sophisticated works." Circle hasu We plant seeds in the spring of mountains is among the five projects to be presented at Stückemarkt. I will revisit the work, which I first premiered at The Gallatin Galleries in 2021 and which involves multiple performances and one main performance. I will refine the project inspired by my research I have been conducting in Berlin.
