At Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, Venice, Italy for Contemporary Venice: Architectures of Identities.
‘Fragmented Identities‘ was an international art and architecture festival presented by It’s Liquid Group and International ArtExpo. I was invited to perform for the opening of the event on 4 August 2016 at Venice Art House Gallery, but the performance was moved to Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi at the last minute.
I’d created another variation on my previous performance at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi in April, which itself was a shortened version of my show for the Telegraph Hill Festival in March. Once again, my time was limited to 20 minutes, but this time it was entirely physical without the dialogue in Italian. I performed solo but with lots of interaction with the audience, including body painting and an impromptu dance.
You can read more about the performance and our experiences around Venice in my 2016 blog, ‘Borders and Fragmented Identities‘, and in Steve’s 2016 blog, ‘Fragmented itineraries in Venice‘.
