SELF-PORTRAIT IN 3 ACTS

Diana Anselmo

Self-portrait in 3 Acts is a video-performance made up of three acts, where Diana Anselmo investigates the concept of staring and invites the public to share horizons and imageries for a plurality of bodies, stories, experiences, and identities, through excerpts from the manifesto of Al.Di.Qua. Artists – the first European association led by people with disabilities in the performing arts, of which the artist is a member.

In this piece, the 1st Act explores the meaning of inhabiting a body with disabilities; the 2nd Act focuses on the suffering gaze, reflecting the intrusion of other gazes on bodies; the 3rd Act leads to a reappropriated look, as poetic as it is political, of the sought-after and self-determined desire for one's own corporeality. A look that stops being singular and becomes collective and that can, finally, break the limits of the definitions previously given to bodies with disabilities.
