Public space projects

Public space projects include promenade performances, activations of disused/empty buildings, durational performances and  public interventions. The majority of public space projects choreographed and/or curated by Mariela Nestora invite participants-artists and citizens of different ages and experience, through an open call. These creations respond to the specific characteristics of the location(s) in the urban environment of each city aiming to weave into the choreography the narratives, history and sociopolitical relevance of the site and its current state while proposing activations that reclaim these as common spaces.
