Diorama is a co-creation project developed as part of CRISOL – creative processes, a funded under the Boarding Pass Plus 2022-24 programme promoted by Ministero della Cultura in Italy.

After online meetings held from May to August 2023, Italian dancers and choreographers Olimpia Fortuni, Fabio Novembrini, Roberta Racis, together with the artists Albert Garcia (Macao/Taipei), Jereh Leung (Singapore), Er Gao (Guangzhou) met in Macao to further develop, with the curatorial coordination of Daniel Kok (tutor/dramaturg, Singapore), the topic of the “Diorama” as a performative container for different forms of physical practices, artistic propositions, critical reflections, experimental methodologies,

This work process aimed at creating a performative device for different forms of physical practices, artistic proposals, critical reflections, experimental methodologies.

During the residency, held at Stella & Artists space, the artists, starting from an initial reflection on the theory of the gaze and visual politics in performance, developed a collective exploration, that was presented to the public at the Black Box Theatre of the Macao Cultural Centre as part of Macao CDE Springboard on 9 and 10 September.
This “exhibition” of performances, videos and installations took place across four hours with a programme including: The Survival Practice by Albert Garcia, Butterfly Island by Er Gao, The Vanishing Act by Olimpia Fortuni, MIMETISMO by Fabio Novembrini, Mrs Chan & Mr Chow by Jereh Leung, Scraps by Roberta Racis.
