Kunst gebruiken om grenzen te overschrijden, te delen en te verkennen, met de wens om nieuwe mogelijkheden en andere wegen te ontdekken. Met deze filosofie hebben we ons opengesteld voor de schepping van "HE".
Een multidisciplinaire en ervaringsgerichte performatieve act, die de kunstenaar laat experimenteren met de dualiteit tussen materiële en etherische elementen. Helium en capillaire kracht brengen haar in een staat van fysieke en mentale flow, waardoor de grenzen tussen lichaam en geest worden opgeheven, waardoor ze kan bewegen geleid door de wind, maar ook de grond kan gebruiken om haar eigen richtingslijnen op te leggen. Het resultaat is een staat van innerlijk bewustzijn waarin de geest niet langer bezig is, maar volledig opgaat in de ervaring.
Martina Nova – performer
Multidisciplinary artist born in Milan, she lives and works in Turin. She began her circus studies in 2002 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she trained as a circus acrobat at the Escuela de Circo Criollo, specialising in aerial acrobatics. After many years of performance work with the Duoacrobat company, she turned to “performing art”, mixing, thanks to her studies of movement with Doriana Crema, her experience as an aerialist with her own universe and other languages, such as physical theatre and dance.
In 2009, during the creation of the show “Armonaria e il Viaggio di una Crinolina” (Harmonaria and the Journey of a Crinoline), she began experimenting with new sounds linked to aerial acrobatics and physical movement with an electronic instrument created specifically to be played during the performance on the aerial fabric. With the same show, in 2010, she won the prize for Best Absolute Premiere at the Festival Mirabilia in Fossano.
Subsequent works will have in common experimentation, movement, sound and sensations, until arriving, in 2019, at the creation of “He”, in which technique is abandoned and the focus is on perception, on places and on the experience of the performance itself.
Since 2008 she has been directing La Fucina del Circo, a teaching space as well as a space for the creation and production of performances.
Roberto Vigliotti – musician
Born in Turin, he has always been attracted to new sounds and sound experimentation. In 2012 he attended the Electronic Music Production course at the Percorsi Sonori association in Turin, and in 2013, again at the same association, he attended the Audio Production and Post-Production course. In 2014 he continued his training with the second course of Audio Production and Post-Production at MusicLab in Settimo Torinese.
Over the years, his passion for percussion, experimental music and rhythmics has led him to mix different languages.
Since 2012 he has been audio technician for the shows “Luce” and “Il Viaggio di una Crinolina” by Martina Nova, where he uses electronic music and produces live sounds. His latest project, which led him to the performance “He”, is the use of small percussion instruments combined with recycled objects to experiment with sound in various forms, accompanied by a loop station.
Since 2012, with Martina Nova, he has been running La Fucina del Circo, a space for teaching aerial disciplines, creating and producing shows.
Daniel Medrano – Public relations
A multi-disciplinary artist born in Madrid, he discovered his passion for scenario at the Lycée Français in Madrid when he joined the theatre group. After this experience he approached the world of circus and graduated in circus disciplines at the Carampa Circus School in Madrid.
During his training he joined the SonOros Company, with a performance that combines sound and movement with improvisation and active listening.
Passionate about harmony and minimalist aesthetics, he develops his projects in Granada at the creative space La Buia where he meets Martina and Roberto and joins the He project to promote the performance and for public relations at the Amsterdam Fringe Festival.
La Fucina del Circo
La Fucina del Circo is a non-profit association born in 2008 from Martina Nova’s passion for circus disciplines and performing arts with the aim of promoting contemporary circus production in Italy and abroad. Specialised in aerial disciplines, in 2012 it found it’s full realization with the concrete implementation of a space with specific characteristics suitable for the creation of shows, contemporary circus performances, courses and workshops.
A well-equipped circus space, in Barriera di Milano in Turin, where you can find courses with professional teachers, moments of collective training and time dedicated to creation. A place to meet passion and creativity in an environment full of sharing.
