Mimesi1-webMimesi, the developing project by Silvia Bastianelli and Samuel Webster is a physical exploration between three principal components: the self, the persona and ‘the other’. It is the expression of two internal states, filtered through an external perspective. The creative process, therefore, is the meeting of two artists at the point in which their experiences meet and come together – making art from intimate interactions between particular artists, instead of from a story pre-written and already closed.  Entering into the single experiences of both artists, the final work will reflect, replicate and explore their emotional and psychological experiences as they evolve consciously and socially.

“Dance unites us in a magnificent project. Working with Samuel in a direct relationship is immediately interesting – his ideas are always intelligent and his mood always cheerful; in working with Samuel, the artistic growth is continuous. When he works, the process is affected by his seriousness and surprised by his brilliant artistic intuition.”
Silvia Bastianelli

Mimesi, Il progetto in sviluppo di Silvia Bastianelli e Samuel Webster è un’esplorazione attraverso tre componenti principali: il sé, la persona e “l’altro”. È l’espressione di due stati interni, filtrati attraverso la prospettiva dell’esterno. Il processo creativo, dunque, è l’incontro di due artisti nei punti in cui le loro esperienze si confrontano e si completano a vicenda – creando arte dall’intima interazione tra artisti particolari, invece che da una storia prescritta e già chiusa. Entrando nelle singole esperienze di entrambi gli artisti, il lavoro finale rifletterà, replicherà e esplorerà le loro esperienze emotive e psicologiche mentre si svolgono consapevolmente e socialmente.

“La danza ci unisce in un magnifico progetto. Lavorare con Samuel in un rapporto diretto é subito interessante le sue idee sempre intelligenti e il suo umore sempre allegro; nel lavoro con Samuel, la crescita artistica è continua. Quando Webster lavora si è contagiati dalla sua serietà e sorpresi dalla sua intuizione geniale dell’artista.”
