All Eyes On

Teresa Vittucci

In an exhibitionist society where what is not shown does not exist, Teresa Vittucci exposes her body to the collective gaze: that of the audience in the theatre and that of random spectators around the world who are watching via live stream. As a performer on stage, Camgirl online and host in both spaces Teresa invites everybody into her intimate space. As the chatroom feeds the performance with spontaneous and unknown content, there is a constant negotiation with what is uncontrollable. Teresa Vittucci constantly re-composes the performance and inevitably has to navigate questions of power, subjectification and desire.The audience becomes a witness to the fragile moment in which Teresa encounters strangers online. If the spectator looks away or if her chat-room visitors disconnect the show cannot go on. In this way the audience becomes a witness, actor and necessary voyeur in this live reality.

Teresa Vittucci A graduate of the Vienna Conservatory, the Ailey School in New York and SEAD in Salzburg, she is a choreographer, actress and performer based in Zurich. Her growing fascination for performance led her to study at the School of Fine Arts in Bern, where she obtained a Master’s in Scenic Arts Practice. She has created numerous solos, such as «Unleash», «Lunchtime» and «All Eyes On». The audience is often on the edge of their seat, as her creations play with the tension between character and performer with a good dose of bodily humour. Winner notably of the grant danceWEB from the ImpulsTanz festival in Vienna, she also created the duo «U Betta Cry» (2014) with Nils A. Lange at Tanzhaus in Zurich. Her newest solo «Hate Me, Tender» received second prize from PREMIO 2018 and was selected for Zürcher Theaterspektakels Short Pieces platform.
