About

Italian artist Marinella Senatore discusses her multidisciplinary practice during the development of a new project with MOT International (October — November 2014). Disrupting the traditional roles of artist as author and public as audience, Senatore's works often involve mass public participation, harnessing the creative powers of a crowd to initiate dialogues between histories, cultures and social structures. Typical of her broader practice, Senatore's 2012 film Rosas, an opera for the screen, involved the participation of over 20,000 citizens in Germany, Spain and UK. In 2013, Senatore founded The School of Narrative Dance, a nomadic, free-of-charge school that focuses on processes of storytelling to propose an alternative system of education. To date, the School has involved the participation of thousands of people in seven different countries. Marinella Senatore (b.1977, Cava dei Tirreni) lives and works in London and Berlin. She is a PhD Candidate, University of Castilla-La Mancha (2014), holds degrees from Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Castilla-La Mancha (2006), National Film School, Rome (2001), Fine Art School, Naples (1998) and a Master Degree in Violin, Conservatory of Music, Avellino (1997).
