historical

After studying literature at the Universidad Nacional del Litoral de Santa Fe (Argentina) and having had a first approach to theatre with the director and playwright Rafael Bruza, Gustavo Giacosa moved to Italy where he met Pippo Delbono in 1991. With Delbono’s company he pursued a professional training course and, until 2010, he took part in the company’s theatrical and cinematographic productions performing in the biggest theaters and at international festivals: Avignon Festival, Venice Biennale, Royal Shakespeare Company, Shizuoka Performing Arts Festival among others.

His experience of working with marginalized people and people with disabilities led him to reflect on the relationship with the other. Together with a collective of artists from the city of Genoa, in 2005 he set up the learned society ContemporArt (www.contemporart.eu) . Since then, he has been researching on the relationship between art, mental illness and marginality in different artistic forms, becoming the curator of several exhibitions around this theme.

In 2010 he became the artistic director of the ContemporArt Ospitale D'Arte exhibition space in Villa Piaggio in Genoa and the artistic director of the annual multidisciplinary event “Transfigured Night”.

In 2012 he moved to France and with pianist and composer Fausto Ferraiuolo he founded the theater company SIC.12 based in Aix-en-Provence, which has since then become a platform for multidisciplinary artistic research and activity.
