Museum of Human Emotions is a project born in 2019 that involves artists from different countries who have been commissioned durational dances, inspired by human emotions and symbolic objects they have brought from their country of origin. In addition to Bassano del Grappa, the project is also being developed in Paris, Tokyo and Taiwan. It was realized in collaboration with National Kaohsiung Centre for the Arts (Taiwan), Saison Foundation (Japan), Italian Cultural Institute of Tokyo, La Briqueterie (France).
In 2019, in Bassano del Grappa, it was presented in two versions: a very first version, during B.Motion danza, which featured in the Torre delle Grazie in the city centre, the creations of Clara Furey and Mélanie Demers from Canada, James Batchelor and S.J.Norman from Australia and Margrét Bjarnadóttir from Iceland. A second version, presented on 6 September, involved Masako Matsushita (Italy), Teita Iwabuki (Japan), Sorour Darabi (France) and Ming-Hwa YEH (Taiwan).
On both stages I facilitated and collected the public’s responses in the form of artistic feedback.
