ISADORA: Create, Manipulate and Activate all the Media Components of a Work

After studies in dance and music, Armando Menicacci obtained a Master in Musicology from the   University of Rome and a PhD on the relationships between dance and digital technologies from Paris 8 University in 2003. Starting in 2000, he taught Isadora Visual Programming at Paris 8 University, as well as other universities abroad and the Centre de Formation pour les Techniciens du Spectacle in Paris. From 2015 to 2019, he taught at UQÀM where he created the Dance and New Technologies Program.

Nicolas Berzi is a director, playwright and researcher-creator interested in integrating new technologies to the process of multidisciplinary creation. After completing a Masters in aesthetic philosophy on dissonance in Modern Art (UDEM, 2011), he founded the creative company Artiste Inconnu (Montréal, 2013), where he acts as General and Artistic Director and produces many multidisciplinary and multimedia scenic pieces.

Tracy Valcárcel (she/her) is a Peruvian lens-based artist and cultural worker currently living in Tio’tia:ke / Montréal. Trained in video, dance and physical theatre, she moved to Canada in 2009 to pursue studies in Interdisciplinary Performance and Media Arts. In her practice, she uses moving images and archive to consider the body as a living cultural map, questioning to what extent our identities are shaped by memory, environment and habit. Central to her research are the broader themes of food and migration. Her work and collaborations have been shown locally as well as internationally at video and performance festivals. She is an active member of Fruition, a Montreal-based QTBIPOC collective and her video work is distributed by GIV.
