Performance is one of the most engaging and powerful means of expression that an artist can use. For Lucca Biennale it is particularly interesting to include artists in the program who express themselves through performance, in order to ensure that visitors will have an unforgettable experience.
Two performances were presented in 2018 at the inauguration of the Biennale: Play Human by Martina Zena and No People Boat by Gianfranco Gentile. Play Human narrated the cycle of life with 8 monotypes (images on paper created by pressing the hands on a surface) combining sign and sound. No People Boat was a political and social comment in which the artist, reading a song, erased the faces of migrants with white paint. The gesture symbolized the silence and depersonalization that society imposes on these people.
For the 2021 Biennale the number of artists who will bring a performance is increasing and the presence of Elisabetta Bonuccelli, Davide Francesca and Jacobo Alonso can already be confirmed! In the coming weeks a video will be published on the Biennale's social channels with an exclusive presentation of the section and these three artists, an opportunity not to be missed.
The 10th Edition of Lucca Biennale will be held for the first time in an odd year from August 1 to September 26, 2021.
