Alessandro Sciarroni is an Italian artist active in the field of Performing Arts with several years of experience in visual arts and theater research. His work goes beyond the traditional definitions of gender and is featured in festivals, museums and unconventional spaces, in whole Europe, South and North America, Middle East and Asia.
In his creations he involves professionals from different disciplines and uses some techniques and experiences from dance, as well as circus or sports. His work tries to uncover obsessions, fears and fragilities of the act of performing, through the repetition of a practice to the limits of the physical endurance of the interpreters, looking at a different dimension of time, and to an empathic relationship between the audience and the performers.
In 2019 he was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement in Dance by the Venice Biennial.
