Francesca Sproccati

Francesca Sproccati (1984, Lugano- Switzerland) is an artist working in the field of Performing Arts. She creates scenic installations that become contemplative environments in which sound, matter and sensation stimulate and enhance the dimension of listening, and give space to the encounter between body and matter beyond the performance itself, staging a fragile and unresolved space that is left to the public to complete.

In 2017 she started her personal artistic research, creating in 2018 the performance installation of long duration based on the action of jumping EXP: je voudrais commencer par sauter. In 2019 she co-creates with Alan Alpenfelt Mein Vater Erzählt Mir Jeden Sonntag Unsere Neun Planeten, a 24-hours radio and performance installation inspired by Space. In 2021 she creates Out of Me, Inside You (semifinalist at PREMIO Schweiz 2020), a live set celebrating the state of melancholy and includes the listening of the vinyl Out of Me, Inside You. Il tempo di rivoluzione è un giro attorno al sole (2022), an original sound work.
In 2022 Francesca was nominated for the Swiss Performance Art Award with the performance Out of Me, Inside You.
She is co-founder and co-creator of the movement TIB - Ticino is Burning (Swiss Performing Arts Awards 2022) putting into practice an exercise of horizontal co-creation with the intention of shaping and providing space for opportunities, encounter and exchange besides action and critical reflection.
In 2023 she co-curated, as member of TIB and Associazione Idra, the performing arts programming of La Straordinaria.
