SPECIAL HANDLING | project for On Mobilisation

A project by Elisabetta Consonni

Graduated in Communication with a final thesis on the social construction of the body in dance and graduated at The Place-London, Elisabetta Consonni deepened her research in performing art living in Holland (2004-2009) and Poland (2013-2015). Her works for conventional spaces aim to expand the practice of choreography seeking for performative devices to incorporate a social discourse. Her activism in the social and civic sphere takes the artistic form of a research process that since 2013 investigates the use and social meaning of public space and the declination of choreographic skills in working with marginalised groups. Her work searches for the continuous interlacing between practice and production of knowledge through it.

ON MOBILISATION focuses on community mobilisation through artistic processes. This bottom-up project co-funded by the European Union, takes an active role in an international solidarity and emancipatory movement. It aims to bring together and to engage individuals for favouring forms of social justice and equality. In order to effectively address the concept of micro-community mobilisation the project embraces local specificities of the four partner organisations: wpZimmer, Baltic Art Center, Studio ALTA and Lavanderia a Vapore. They are mobilised by adopting radical forms of cultural participation facilitated by six international artists: Kalle Brolin, Elisabetta Consonni, Daniele Ninarello, Ahilan Ratnamohan, Marika Smreková and Danae Theodoridou.
