Although the artistic background of both artists is rooted in the performing arts -dance in the case of Barbara Matijevic who studied dance and literature and theater in the case of Giuseppe Chico who studied ancient languages and theater-, their artistic partnership is born out of their common interest in visual arts, more specifically in conceptual and performance art.
They created the company PREMIER STRATAGÈME in 2008.
ABOUT THE WORK
Their work explores what theatre and performance can mean in contemporary life that is being so profoundly transformed by the new tools of the mind, such as the Internet. Their performances revolve around a constant re-evaluation of the intellectual and cultural consequences of an entirely new way to access information. They bring the material found in the virtual world of the Internet to the theatre, reconnecting them with reality through the real time-space relationship with the audience.
