Sidney Leoni (FR/SE/BE)
Sidney Leoni works as a choreographer, performer and filmmaker, and lives and works in Brussels & Stockholm. His artistic research explores the field of immersive and experiential theatre and cinema, in which he focuses on the processes and effects of audience's imaginary and sensory perceptions. With his last two performance projects Undertone (2010) and Hertz (2013) (co-produces by BUDA) the theatre space is plunged in complete darkness becoming the stage for the orchestration of sensory movements such as surround-soundscapes, live music, smells, vibrations, airflows and temperature fluctuations, in correlation to performative situations of encounter and mutual reliance between performers, musicians and audience members.
Sidney Leoni (SE/BE): FLY
Leoni's current interdisciplinary research project - FLY - stands at the crossroads of an autobiographical docu-fiction and a symphonic testament to the Arts. On stage and on screen, his itinerary gets revealed by a series of encounters with influential artists, including Vaslav Nijinsky, Bronislava Nijinska, Gena Rowlands, Jane Campion, John Cassevetes, and Freddy Mercury, under uncertain socio-political and meteorological climates.
