School of Narrative Dance
Assemble collaborated with Marinella Senatore to design a temporary home for the School of Narrative Dance at the MAXXI Gallery, Rome. Comissioned as a school without walls, the project was built outside in the piazza as a circular arena.
Taking its cue from the circus ring, Assemble created a space for informal play, participatory workshops and more formal performances. The project’s occupation culminated in a performance throughout the gallery and piazza by the school’s 300 participants.
The School of Narrative Dance is an ongoing project by Marinella Senatore: a nomadic school, where anyone can be a student and which teaches the art of storytelling through dance, theatre and film. The project was the winner of the PREMIO MAXXI 2014
