Elaborating on his method of collage, Francesco Nassimbeni weaves drama, design, music and poetry to produce pieces that have been variously described as ‘tone poems’, ‘visual music’ and ‘theatrical mood-boards’.
Francesco Nassimbeni is a theatre-maker, designer, writer and arts educator.
Most recently he directed and designed Klara Van Wyk’s enormously popular one-person show, “You Suck (and other inescapable truths)” which earned her both a Standard Bank Ovation award and a Fleur du Cap nomination.
“All of it, Everything, Now, Together” concludes his study on visuality in performance at UCT and is an experiment in how graphic design can express itself through the medium of performance. This project is the culmination of his MA research.
Francesco Nassimbeni has collaborated with celebrated designer Heath Nash, known for his subtle, subtractive design process and ingenious repurposing of discarded materials and objects. The result is a meditative visual poem, performed by a dynamic group of UCT’s theatre-making and acting students.
“All of it, Everything, Now, Together” opens on Wednesday 15th February and runs until Sunday 19th February at UCT’s Bindery Lab.
