«Launched in 2014, the BLIND DATE project has spotlighted my research into site-specific Instant Composition, focusing on the relationship between Body and Sound, in non-theatre contexts.
For each event, I invited a musician to perform with me who has professional experience in Instant Composition, often individuals with whom I had worked in the past. But other times it was a musician with whom I had never worked and were recommended to me by colleagues.
BLIND DATE has been hosted in various venues such as: Triennale Bovisa Contemporary Art Museum of Milan (with Elia Moretti/vibraphon); Villa Croce Contemporary Art Museum of Genova (with Elia Moretti/percussions); Pecci Museum of Prato (with Emanuele Parrini/violin); Modena Central Station (with Igino Casalgrande/drums).
BLIND DATE 2.0
In this updated version of the project, I have decided to comprehensively expand the richness of the concept by performing with a musician with whom I not only have never worked, but will have never met beforehand… a sincere “blind date” scenario.»
