Federico Protto (UY/IT)


Federico Protto

MAPA is an ongoing artistic research attempting to strengthen cross-continental kinship through interweaving various aspects and stories of migration. The work harbours practices of relating, encounter, sensing, mapping, negotiation, remembering, and entanglement to reflect upon territory, ancestry, (co)existence, and the inter-personal. It is expressed in a series of performances ranging from lectures and workshops to choreographic scores and happens periodically between Europe and Federico’s birthplace Uruguay. Fellow artists Jimena Pérez Salerno and Carolina Mendonça will also participate in MAPA.

In BUDA Federico will do research on the 3rd lecture-performance of the series, as well as further rehearse choreographic aspects.
