Educated as a philosopher and art historian at University of Bologna, Antonella De Sarno is a performer and visual artist.
She comes to the visual and performing arts from theater after having trained and worked with Pippo Delbono for ten years. Meanwhile, she studied with several choreographers and visuals artists in Italy and France, where she is currently based. She completed a certified training in Sensible Dance® (complete somatic technique) with Claude Coldy, plus she deepened her approach to movement and on stage presence, making it more insightful and high-quality, with Raffaella Giordano and Benoît Lachambre.
From 2016 she has been a resident host for research and creation at Les Deux Iles Residence pour artistes
in Montbazon (France), where she works on her projects.
The roots of her artistic research arise from a peculiar relationship developed with her body since she was a child. An element that has a specific importance in his biography due to accidents and medical errors, his body was first a place of crystallized fear and pain, then later, over time, it became a privileged space for experience and knowledge, a field of investigation. and finally working.
Her works are born out of an uninterrupted dialogue between the shaping of internal space as it is perceived and the weaving of threads that meet to create structures of sense in the external, collective and social space. The staging of relationship strategies between space, objects and bodies, the essence of the intimate and the social observed and put on stage with a subtle touch, are at the center of her work.
Her latest project Faces from the dark / towards the light, reported at the Combat Award 2020 in the sculpture and installations section.
