PARC Performing Arts Research Centre Firenze | IT

Activity not open to the public

As part of the Fondo project, promoted by Santarcangelo dei Teatri and 12 other partners that have established a network dedicated to the productive development of emerging artists, Fabbrica Europa hosts the sound artist Agnese Banti for a new residency at PARC with Speaking cables. Choreographic device for voice, cables and speakers.

“To bring one’s own voice to the stage in order to interrogate it as something other than oneself. To play with it and enter into a relationship with it, to unravel and stitch space through the spatialised sound that is revealed on stage. The compositional research is articulated in monologues, choruses, dialogues and silences thanks to a choreography that combines the experiences of acousmatic music and sound art with the idea that loudspeakers are not only sound diffusion devices but also presences with which to enter into a relationship.” agnesebanti/speaking-cables/

During the residency Ana Pi, Brazilian choreographic and imagery artist, researcher and pedagogue, will hold a masterclass for the artists of the Fondo Agnese Banti and Emilia Verginelli.


Agnese, Delia Banti /she/her. Sound artist, musician and overtone singer. Her activity has always been gravitating around many points of attraction: such as choral music, soundscape studies, traditional folk music repertoires, space composition and the collaborative dimension of making music. One of the things that fascinated her the most in recent years is the research made around a sound installation project on frog voices and ancient ruins that she realised between the Electronic Music School of Bologna and the Ionian University of Corfu for her master’s degree.
She collaborates with Tempo Reale, the esteemed centre for musical research, production and education in Florence founded by Luciano Berio and she works on overtones singing projects with the Italian composer Roberto Laneri.
She recently attended Malagola, the School of vocality and international centre for voice studies based in Ravenna and collaborated with the choreographer Marta Bellu and the dancer Laura Lucioli in the show I versi delle mani.
In 2023, thanks to the support of the Fondo – Network per la creatività emergente, she will carry on athe artistic research for a new performative project which will be developed during residencies at Santarcangelo dei Teatri, I Teatri di Reggio Emilia, Fabbrica Europa, L’arboreto – Teatro Dimora e Ravenna Teatro.
