Elisabetta Consonni

Elisabetta Consonni choreographs everything: human and inhuman beings, movable and immobile objects, maps, interstices and spatial holiday groups to build a network of relationships, subtle and strong, like sugar glass . Graduated in Communication Sciences with a thesis on the social construction of the body in dance, she attends The Place-London Contemporary Dance School (2004-2005) and independently deepens research in the performative and existential field in Holland (2005-2009) and in Poland ( 2013-2015).
With the works Maquillage (2007), Fotoritocco (2012), Pluto (2016) and And the colored girls say: doo da doo da doo da doo (2018,) she attempts to expand choreographic practice by seeking performative devices to incorporate social discourse.
Her activism in the social and civic fields takes the artistic form of a research process called Ergonomica which since 2013 has been investigating the use and social significance of public space and the declination of choreographic skills in work with fragile communities. Within the project, she realizes the site specific actions We want to become architecture and Go with the flow (Poland, 2014), the choreographed construction of Pompenpurg Park (Rotterdam, Biennale of Architecture 2014), Zeno’s Second Paradox (2016), Enough Space for the most tender of attentions (project for the Venice Biennale Danza 2016) and together to Connecting Cultures, the Ergonomic Space symposium (again as part of the 2016 Biennale Danza).
In 2019 she won the Open- Contemporary [Urban] Creation call with the project I want you a public good . She is a Refugees Welcome activist.
