TripSpace Projects presents: Francesca Foscarini | Back Pack


In my nomadic life I feel something special for my backpack. Each time it forces me to a compulsory choice: what I put inside and what I leave out. What remains out of it may be less important than what gets in, it’s like a filter between me and all the rest.

Project by and with Francesca Foscarini | Technical support Luca Serafini | Promotion and communication Cristina Perez Sosa | Production VAN | Coproducers: Centro per la Scena Contemporanea di Bassano del Grappa; Centro Jobel Residenza Teatrale
With the support of MiBACT ¬ Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali
Some material for this work was developed through the project Dyptique supported by Circuit¬Est Centre Chorègraphique Montreal (QC), Centro per la Scena Contemporanea Bassano del Grappa
Special thanks to Cosimo Lopalco

The performance will be followed by a post-show talk moderated by John Ashford.
