Serre Torrigiani, via Gusciana 21, Florence2017 edition in Novoli
After last year’s noteworthy Novoli-headquartered edition, sound-centered festival Sonic Somatic makes a comeback, this time touching down in Serre Torrigiani, the gasp-worthy greenhouse inside Florence’s definitive “secret garden” in via Gusciana. Exploring the interplay between space, body and sound, Sonic Somatic’s 2018 edition will spotlight the work of American artist and composer Ari Benjamin Meyers, performing his genre-defying work in Italy for the first time. Five of Meyers’ recent works will be presented, spanning duets, solo pieces and group exhibitions; audience members will be invited to engage directly with the performers, moving their bodies and creating a symbiotic and spontaneous show-within-a-show. All events are free, but require a reservation; for the full program, see www.sonicsomatic.org or book directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
