Elena Francalanci & David Eder
Elena Francalanci and David Eder started their collaboration summer 2019, when they decided to created the first art video together named “The art of eating insects”. Elena, Italian, freelancer based in Berlin and Vienna, started her career in Ballet, studing in Balletto di Toscana in Florence with the artistic direction of Christina Bozzolini. She was learning ballet repertoire and dancing choreography from Mauro Bigonzetti, Eugenio Scigliano.. She took part of Balletto Teatro di Torino dancing for Itzik Galili and in 2017 she moved to Berlin deciding to start freelancing. She performed in pieces from Costanza Macras, Alessandra Giuriola. In September 2018 started her collaboration with Toihaus Theater, Salzburg, directed by Cornelia Böhnisch, followed by the next opportunity in Festspielhaus St. Pölten where she danced choreography from Ohad Naharin and Shahar Binyamini, and other collaboration in Leipzig with René Reinhardt in Schaubühne Lindenfeld. She is now diving into the Dance theater dimension, experiencing techniques as Butoh and Gaga, where the body and the mind are connecting, where the consciousness of your actions is presence, where the performer is embodying specific states of being.
David, Austrian, based in Berlin and Vienna, is working since 8 years in the movie business, more deeply into the creation of sets and stages that represent the more hidden parts of the piece. He is also painting and drawing, mostly images of his inner persona. He was creating the set and the installation in 2019 for “Missing People” from Bela Tarr in Wiener Festwochen. In the past years he collaborated for the realization of the set of “Maximilian” from Andreas Prochaska and with Martin Reiter under the direction of Marie Kreutzer.
They together are exploring the contradictions of the human beings, creating mostly images, performances and videos art.
