PERFORMING ARTS AND VISUAL ARTS
Cecilia Bertoni was born and grew up in Italy, but lived elsewhere. Poetry, musicality, the architecture of the body and of space in movement – or not, and their dynamics – are the subjects of her research. The spaces suspended between life and death, between dreaming and awake, are the scenes in which these subjects play and are played out, like fragments of memory and of longing: the absence of what is no more and what is yet to be. The instruments of the narrative vary between dance, drama, photography, embroidery, drawing, installation and video. They develop in neutral spaces, or give life to a dialogue with the outside spaces in nature and/or are site-specific.
Creator of the entire Dello Scompiglio Project which expands the concept of culture to encompass the environment, the landscape, the agriculture and the Cucina (restaurant), she is the co-founder and artistic director of the Associazione Culturale Dello Scompiglio based in Vorno (Lucca).
Following her eclectic training, she has worked abroad as director, performer, choreographer, set designer and dramaturge in numerous projects.
She was co-founder and artistic director of the company Circle-X Arts, London.
She is a Feldenkrais® teacher.
Solitudine da Camera (Chamber Solitude)
Trilogia dell'Assenza (Trilogy of Absence)
Trilogy of Absence comprises of three performances that interact and engage with the theme of losing and winning, its relationship with time and in all its different dynamics, in and out of reality. The question is addressed from different perspectives and develops in different spaces and places of the Tenuta Dello Scompiglio.
