PRIZE WINNER FOR CHOREOGRAPHIC ARTS AT THE INTERNATIONAL BIENNIAL OF INTERACTIVE ARTS EBN 2012, FRANCE.
Maria Donata D'Urso is at the crossroads of dance, circus, performance and installation. (...) For each of her solos, she confronts sculptures, which are kind of apparatuses that her body explores and reconfigures in accordance with a permanent dialogue. In Strata 2.0 she refers to the principles of tensegrity coined by Buckminster Fuller, architect at the Black Mountain School in 1959 and uses a structure similar to the art pieces produced by Kenneth Snelson.
At the service of an object that she sublimates, Maria Donata D'Urso hopes to “do away with the ground”, and reinvent the body's matter like plasticine, as flesh to sculpt.”
