Via Nova Series

Performance series 2009 -2011. Small format performances (mostly solos or duets) created on the basis of questions raised during the period 2002 – 2008 in order to ask these questions anew in new contexts and to introduce them in new formats of presentation. Via Nova is the inverse of Via Negativa (announced at the time of establishing the VN in 2002), which reflects its own production through questions about the relationships between old and new, creation and destruction, theory and practice, copy and original, presence and absence, worth and cost … Via Nova 2009 catalogue (pdf)
