Azzurra De Gregorio was born in Termoli (CB) in 1985. She began her career as an actress and then extended her research in the field of performing art and visual art, driven by the need to experiment a hybrid and nomadic artistic path that bases its expressive code on the absence of definitions. Her work, in addition to investigate the relationship between the actor / performer and the public, explores the bonds that connect theater, performance and visual art.
Her research, characterized by constant references to ancient painting, symbolism, mythology and sacred art, aims to create immersive and evocative experiences that arise from the combination and interaction of music, scenes, gestures, lights, movements, costumes and new technologies.
Her production, that includes theatrical plays, performances, site specific and photographic projects, has been presented in several contexts: Romaeuropa Festival (2017), Stoff/ Stockholm Festival (2016), Napoli Teatro Festival (2015) , Mediterranea 17/Young Artists Biennale (2015), Weores Sandor National Hungarian Theatre (2019), Apache- Teatro Litta Milano (2016), Festival of Juventudes Interartes of Salvador De Bahia-Brazil (2019), Night With Performance Festival (Poland), Poietika Art Festival (2021), About The Future festival 2021), Dansathon Liege (2021).
