A city on the move: in the community project The School of Narrative Dance, the highly respected Italian artist Marinella Senatore invites dancers, musicians, choirs, bands, brass bands, clubs and individuals of all ages to participate in choreographing the city. Senatore is not only concerned with initiating social processes, but also with questioning concepts such as public life and social responsibility, finding alternative forms of story­telling and ultimately generating a collective memory through communal action. The sum of the creative po­tential of all those taking part is expressed in a vibrant portrait of Salzburg. Individual ideas are staged in the form of a grand parade through the city directed by Marinella Senatore, working in close collaboration with local choreographers. The School of Narrative Dance is a coproduction with the Museum der Moderne Salz­burg, which presents an extensive exhibition of Sena­tore’s visual art works from 22 April to 8 October 2023.
Marinella Senatore is a central figure in Italian contemporary art. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, and at the Music Conservatoire and Na­tional Film School in Rome. In her projects, she brings together professionals and amateurs from disciplines such as dance, music, literature and theatre and offers them a platform for enduring creative collaboration. She herself provides the initial impulse, otherwise the hierarchies between artists, participants and observers are removed. Senatore’s aim is to create an archive for collective narratives that provides the foundation for a new form of communal awareness.
