It is written in the 3rd person because at the time of setting it up (2008) that seemed like the way to go.
Augusto Corrieri is an artist and writer based in Brighton and London.
His works for theatres and galleries have been commissioned by European art centres, including Madrid’s Casa Encendida, Vienna’s Tanzquartier, London's Camden Arts Centre, and Brighton’s Nightingale Theatre.
With a playful rigour, the performances deconstruct the apparatus of theatre, inviting spectators to reflect on questions of spectacle and ecology in the 21st century.
His book, In Place of a Show: what happens inside theatres when nothing is happening (2016) is published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama. It is available for order here.
In parallel to his performance and writing practice, Augusto presents a magic show under the pseudyonym Vincent Gambini (seperate website)
