The transformation of a square into an urban "en plein air theater where art meets cinema, performance and music.
Carlina On Stage is the project that NESXT has designed for Piazza Carlo Emanuele II, known as Piazza Carlina, in the historic center of Turin, which was revived after two years of work as a wonderful urban theater. It begins with Cinema Carlina, which on the 19th and 20th of May 2017, will make the square live as a movie theater with different productions that will explore video art, shorts, video clips, animated gifs and live movie sound dumb. In addition to the screenings, the square will also be featured with performances and contemporary dance performances.
The program is the result of collaborations with Thegifer-International Gif Art Festival, InBetweenArtFilm, Seeyousound-International Music Film Festival, Turin's National Cinema Museum and Mosaic Dance Interplay Festival-International Contemporary Dance Festival.

A new commission for Block Universe, London's Performance Art Festival, running at major institutions and offsite venues from 30 May to 5 June 2016.
Erica Scourti's mytho-biographic performance explores the automation of personality, drawing on ancient Greek tales of the underworld and the notion of human and technological proxies. The performance traces a speculative situation of the artist being fired from her own job and replaced by automated affective agents and human assistants, questioning the role of efficiency-enhancers in an economy that valorises the authentic presence of the artist. The performance humorously explores self-doubt, anxieties of legacy and self-improvement. With assistants Maria D Sotiropoulou, Skye Arundhati Thomas and Afra Zamara.
Erica Scourti was born in Athens, Greece and is now based in London and Athens. She has exhibited, performed and presented talks recently at Microscope Gallery, New York, The
Photographers’ Gallery, Hayward Gallery, Munich Kunstverein, EMST Athens, ICA, David Roberts Art Foundation, Southbank Centre, South London Gallery and the Royal College of Art. Current shows include Big Bang Data at Somerset House, The Practice of Theories at Wysing Arts Centre and Dark Archives, a solo commission at Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam. In 2015 Erica was in residence at Wysing Arts Centre and the White Building, London, and she is a Near Now Fellow 2015/6.

Date: 12/08/2015 Location: Spazio Cigna, via italia 39, Biella, Italy
"T_essere_territorio" is a rich cross-media project aimed at the rediscovery of the natural environment and traditions of Biella situated in the region of Piedmont, in the north of Italy.
The workshop combined different types of artistic means of expression such as dancing, contemporary art, video art and new technologies. With the participation of “Quiet Ensemble” an arts collective based in Rome, the three-day workshop was carried out in three main locations: the natural reserve of Burcina Park, the Lake of Mucrone (at 1,900 meters above sea level) in the valley of Oropa as well as in the center of the city of Biella. The workshop resulted in an art installation in the art gallery, Spazio Cigna, and in a dance performance in the streets opposite the exhibition area.
