Susana Gaudêncio

Susana Gaudêncio will be exploring new installation territory with Blocking Series #2 - The Dream Play. Blocking is a theater term which refers to the precise movement and positioning of actors on a stage. In Gaudêncio's piece, the story is told not through the actor's words but through their motions. Two characters of Strindberg Dream Play have their actions literally drawn in space and time. This site specific work will interpret an excerpt of the text in order to attain a visual translation of the dynamics of the drama.

Susana Gaudêncio was born in Lisbon, Portugal. Gaudêncio has a Painting degree from the Fine Arts School, University of Lisbon. She recently completed her MFA at Hunter College in 2008, her MFA was supported by a fellowship from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Luso-American Foundation (Research and Specialization Grant). In January 2009, Gaudêncio will have a solo show in Carlos Carvalho Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal, and an installation at the Project Room at the ISE Foundation in New York.
