Gestus

Gestus, conceived by Video Sound Art, is the first exhibition project hosted in the space of the Teatrino of Palazzo Grassi, in Venice. The exhibition is divided into two acts and is inspired by the reflections on the body by the great theatre masters of the 20th century (Artaud, Copeau, Decroux, Mejerchol’d). It investigates physical language as an activator of a transformative, spiritual and social dynamic. The whole project is conceived as a constantly evolving body reified by two pairs of performers and a chorus of performers.
