Luca Curci talks with artist Alexandra Foffano during Liquid Rooms – The Body Language exhibition in Venice on November 2015.
Alexandra Micaela Foffano is a Venetian Choreographer, Performer and Teacher. Together with her company Murmure Trinsant, she is developing her choreographic research analyzing society’s issues, expressing them in movements, embodying the meaning in aesthetic.

 Luca Curci – Can you talk about your personal experience in Venice? What did you think about the whole organization of the event, the artist’s selection, the communication management and opening nights?
Alexandra Foffano – I was born in Venice, it’s my home and your professional team let me keep feeling this way during your events. They create a perfect atmosphere in the openings where artists can meet each other and create links and new opportunities; furthermore the number of visitors is huge, so performing for you is always a great experience.

L.C. – What do you think about the collaboration between It’s LIQUID and Ca’ Zanardi/Venice Art House?
A. F. – The organizations are doing really good together. Ca’ Zanardi and VAH are both beautiful venues that perfectly fit to host contemporary art expositions, even if they are so different to each other.

L. C.Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?
A. F. – I usually perform with a dance vocabulary, so it’s always a deep research about the body and how it can communicate with its own language and ways of expression. Rapta is a “personal tale” about a rape and, with the dancers “body language”, it tries to encourage women that had the same awful experience to react and to talk about it, in order to avoid isolating themselves and feel guilty.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?
A. F. – At the moment I am building some new works of art in collaborations with other artists like the composer and sound designer Riccardo Franceschini, the actor Nicolò Rossi and the singer, met in your Milan event Fractal Identities, Lisa La Pietra.

L. C.What is art for you?
A. F. – I do not know if it is actually possible to define art, perhaps the purest expression of human emotions, the crystallization of a feeling, a beautiful way to communicate? My own only certainty is that mankind would be the worst beast, without art.

L. C.What do you think about International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID organizations? Do you think they can represent an opportunity for artists?
A. F. – Absolutely yes. I estimate ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID. First of all because they are among the few who consider dance as an art like the other (rare phenomenon, especially in Italy). My experience says that they are a great opportunity for artists. During the openings there is the opportunity to show to an audience of experts and enthusiasts that give concrete feedbacks about the work; moreover it can create new connections, collaborations with other artists, new work commissions, requests for other exhibitions.
