‘The truth is everything pictures do not tell’ (A.P)
Fotoritocco is multimedia interaction performance between dance-theater action and live photography. Observing a world where ‘everything become an image, where we mostly produce and consume images’ (Roland Barthes), Fotoritocco wants to underline and play with the illusion that photography can create often. The ‘paparazzi’ world is the main dramaturgical reference, a fake diva and a real photographer are the two performers, the third performer is the flow of the images which show her own reality, different from what the audience can actually observe.

In residence at:  Perypezie Urbane (Artist in residence ‘Immagini viste dall’alto’ at Studio 28, Milan), TaklaMakingArt (UnderandOver).

Winner at Presente Futuro 2012 (Palermo).
