The following are decentralised constellations of critical encounters, which have formed part of our collective productions of performance operas and temporary artistic communities over the past years. They inform our understanding of collaborative formats of art-making and are essential in creating opportunities in production and pedagogy. We share a common philosophy of opening, sharing and holding inclusive and brave spaces for radical art production.



Since 2018

We are part of the fluid collective of performance artists, sound artists, researchers and writers co-creating in various non-hierarchical constellations, including but not limited to artists from the Northern Hemisphere. We work in production and education through performance operas, temporary artistic communities, residential educational programs and performance-based film.

Since 2016


We collaborate with La Pocha Nostra, the transdisciplinary arts organization founded in 1993 in Los Angeles around Mexican/Chicano performance artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña, that provides a support network and forum for artists of various disciplines, generations, gender complexities and ethnic backgrounds. La Pocha is devoted to erasing the borders between art and politics, art practice and theory, artist and spectator. For 25+ years, LPN has intensely focused on the notion of collaboration across national borders, race, gender and generations as an act of radical citizen diplomacy and as a means to create "ephemeral communities” of rebel artists.

With Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Balitronica Gómez, La Saula, and many more.

Collaboration highlights




We were part of the Applied Theatre group based in Florence, IT, whose very name indicates the aim to integrate and include people belonging to the most disadvantaged categories: young people at risk, disabled persons and former drug addicts living on the margins of society. Through both the training of Applied Theatre actors and dramaturgies that speak about the participants' experiences, Isole Comprese Teatro expresses a method of theatrical research in continuous transformation, in which cognitive, emotional and social intelligence coexist and act.

Artistic direction: Elena Turchi and Alessandro Fantechi.
