Fabrizio Manco 

« back

Fabrizio Manco is an artist working across disciplines including video, drawing, physical theatre, improvisation, movement, site-specific performance and installation, sound/acoustic ecology and sci-art. This is reflected and integrated in his performance and live art practice, which has always been the main focus of his work. He has explored the concept and questioning of framing and boundaries, as well as that of site and 'place', their phenomenology and ecology, the experience of 'theatricality', ritual and liminality and investigated the relation to physical ailment/vulnerability and becoming. He trained in Fine Art at the Slade (BA and MA) and studied in Arts & Humanities in Italy. He also trained and researched extensively with both experimental theatre groups and teachers in Italy, England and Japan. He has shown, and performed work extensively, nationally and internationally and trained also in Butoh, both in England and Japan. Within this paradigm he has experimented with reference to Tarantism (an ancient phenomenon of his place of origin in Salento, Italy) and was commissioned on this by Chisenhale Dance Space in 2005. Currently, he is involved in an interdisciplinary/collaborative sci-art project on the experience of living with tinnitus with an award from the Wellcome Trust.
