Marco Donnarumma: Body as music instrument

Watch my interview with Marco Donnarumma. He is a Berlin-based artist, performer, stage director, and scholar weaving together contemporary performance, new media art, and interactive computer music since the early 2000s. He manipulates bodies, creates choreographies, engineers machines, and composes sounds, thus combining disciplines, media, and emerging technologies into an oneiric, sensual, uncompromising aesthetics. He is internationally acknowledged for solo performances, stage productions, and installations that defy genres, and where the body becomes a morphing language to speak critically of ritual, power, and technology. Touring consistently for the past fifteen years across major and independent theaters, concert halls, festivals, and museums worldwide, most recently Donnarumma’s work has been shown, among others, at Volkstheater Wien (AT), Münchner Kammerspiele (DE), Romaeuropa Festival (IT), Ming Contemporary Art Museum (CN), Chronus Art Center (CN), Ars Electronica (AT), Donaufestival (AT), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (DE), NRW Forum (DE), Nemo Biennial/HeK Basel (FR), LABoral (ES), musikprotokoll (AT), CTM Festival (DE), tanzhaus nrw (DE), Laznia Center for Contemporary Art (PL), and Kontejner (HR).
