Anna Kushnerova and Sofia Kovarich

Visual artist and performer Anna Kushnerova (UK/Russia), and movement artist and founder of spazio500, Sofia Kovarich (Italy) met at the Himalayan Butoh school and since have shared an ongoing practice in the Butoh dance, co-creating and exploring body based acts.

Their collaboration at Fivizzano27 was inoculated after having met Emilia at Spazio500, a space for artistic research in Trentino. Fivizanno27’s hospitality became an opportunity to meet again.
For their 9 day stay in Eastern Rome, Anna Kushnerova and Sofia Kovarich have called upon a group of artists and dancers from different parts of the world. Michelle Anay Woods will come from Belgium, where she co-founded a performance and event space Table Dance and will work with mediums of foods and cookery. Pierre Antoine Vettorello (Belgium/France) will join us as a dancer bringinging his experience as a maker of garments embodying militancy, hostility and poetry. Anastasia Freygang will explore non-linear forms of narrative through sound and the present body. Eleonora Salvato (Italy) will join us to dance.
