ASTEPBACK – expanded cinema/dance – IT
expanded cinema/dance performance group from Naples, Italy, using multiple Super-8 film projectors and a slide projector to interact with the motion of bodies in space. Visually, their projections are a celebration of tactile film manipulation techniques – scratching, patching, piercing, and drawings with ink and wax are then multiplied onto different walls at different speeds. Complimented by self-made photosensitive sound devices, audio is generated from these different light sources and in turn feeds a feedback loop that interacts and changes with the stage movement. Their performance entitled “AMORFIA chapter1” (dedicated to Carlo Cafiero) in their Berlin debut.
ASTEPBACK are Gaëlle Cavalieri and Andrea Saggiomo. In 2007 they founded their own theater company in Naples and many of their productions have since won awards and been showcased in national and international festivals. Aside from his theatrical performance art works, Andrea Saggiomo performs as the expanded cinema project 70fps and in this guise he has improvised and collaborated with musicians and international artists including Andy Guhl and Seppo Renvall. more under: http://
