Milano, Italy

Marinella Senatore is trained in music, fine arts and film, her practice is characterized by public participation, initiating a dialogue between history, culture and social structures. Rethinking the role of the artist as author and the public as recipient, Senatore’s work merges forms of protest, learning theatre, oral histories, vernacular forms, protest dance and music, public ceremonies, civil rituals and mass events, rethinking the political nature of collective formations and their impact on the social history of places and communities while reflecting on the political dimension of collective formations and how they generate a potential for social change. In 2013 she found The School of Narrative Dance, a nomadic, free of charge school based on horizontal system of education and emancipation. Next to her performative practice she explores urban issues and social topics such as emancipation and equality through painting, collages, installations, video, photography and sound.
