From February to August 2023, I am the guest editor of a series of articles for the Circostrada Network Blog.
The aim of this collaboration is to propose themes and chase protagonists to tackle several urgencies and passionate thoughts about current and important topics in support of contemporary circus and outdoor arts.
The first article sheds light on the importance of creating spaces and times dedicated to artistic research. With the title Dismantling Circus: Research Practices and Radical Change in the Performing Arts, the independent researcher Gaia Vimercati and visual artist Giorgia Zaffanelli share their thoughts on the need for research practices in contemporary circus. Imagining Otherwise, this year's edition of La Parola ai Corpi, an Italian research project dedicated to young professionals, has reinforced in both curators the willingness to shape new apparatus of thought capable of igniting radical change.
