THE SPILL FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE IS AN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF LIVE ART, ACTIVISM AND PERFORMANCE PRESENTING THE WORK OF EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.
When the human condition is conceived as fragmented and hunted by an unavoidable sense of solitude, the body becomes a site of transformation, a liminal space where the borders between in and out, subject and object are blurred.
IN-BE-TWEEN investigates the relationship between absence and presence, the part and the whole, and takes Elena’s research questions on subjectivity and autobiography to create an installation performance where the body is exhibited either as a still image intersected by the fragmenting structure of the space, or as performing small acts of self-constitution.
Elena is a performance maker based in London. Since 2010 she has developed a rigorous body-based practice at the interface between live art and performance. She has a degree in History of Contemporary Art (USU, Udine, Italy), and in 2011 gained a Master Degree in Dance Theatre, The Body in Performance at Laban, where she graduated with Distinction.
