In 2022 TMN managed its first full – after Covid – live version in Milan at ZONA K, a 20 classes course from January til the end of May 2022.
In 2021 TMN, besides on-line courses, went twice on tour to Venice:
Pillole di Performance at Palazzo Grassi: a live, two day introduction to performance art to the staff who welcomes the public at the Bruce Nauman’s Contrapposto Studies show.
Fare l’impossibile at Teatro Ca’ Foscari: from May 3rd, to June 7th, an on-line introductory course in performance for 24 students of all disciplines.
Vanzo gives an in-depth exploration of the world of performance, in a course made of action and reflection on performance, exploring visual art, cinema, poetry and theatre, as well as anthropology, psychology and sociology, supervised by a selected group of curators: Matteo Bergamini, Paola Clerico and Gabi Scardi, who follow the course throughout the year.
Vanzo invites students to investigate the different languages around the depth of a gesture, body as the media, voice, relation with the other, with space, with objects, with the market. Students will work on transmission, individually and in groups.
Focus is on:
– doing: practical exercises, physical work, readings and work analysis.
– watching: exhibitions, theatre shows, performance, video as well as meeting artists, curators and experts.
– transmitting: they will learn to relate their experiences.
