The Museum of Human Emotions is a project created in 2019, involving artists from different countries and asking them to create durational dances inspired by human emotions and by an object representing their country. In 2020 and 2021 the project continued and developed in a new digital format, including shared online workshops and the presence of a dramaturg to facilitate the collaboration among the partners and artists, and to support the researches in the digital and off-line spaces.
The final event on December 10th 2021 has been a digital interactive tour into the spaces of emotions, where artists shared experiences and practices in a virtual Museum – connecting the attending audience individually and universally to the themes researched during the project.
