When the human condition is conceived as fragmented and haunted by an unavoidable sense of solitude, the body becomes a site of transformation, a liminal space where the borders between in and out, subject and object are blurred.
In-be-tween investigates the relationship between absence and presence, the part and the whole, and takes Elena’s research questions on subjectivity and autobiography to create an installation performance where the body is exhibited either as a still image intersected by the fragmenting structure of the space, or as performing small acts of self-constitution.
Elena is a performance maker based in London. Since 2010 she has developed a rigorous body-based practice at the interface between live art and performance. For over seven years she has also been working as a performance artist teaching and performing for different choreographers, and in various educational and community settings. She has a degree in History of Contemporary Art (USU, Udine, Italy), and in 2011 gained a Master Degree in Dance Theatre, The Body in Performance at Laban, where she graduated with Distinction.
