DOO - Divano Occidentale Orientale

The performing arts group DOO – Divano Occidentale Orientale was born in January 2010 by Giuseppe L. Bonifati. Linda Sugataghy (HU) joined in 2013. DOO´s artistic project started in Italy and in the North of Europe (Denmark), and especially from the will to create and produce contemporary art through a deep research, offering it to youth and adults. DOO means VISION, AESTHETICS, ACTION, it’s a wide-ranging project, a continuous journey of contamination across geographical borders. Since the beginning our main concern is one: how to deal through arts with the unconscious and the unknown…

In 10 of existence the group has produced a line of diverse works. They have been hosted in theatres, museums, galleries & art festivals of international significance in Italy, Denmark, France, Costa Rica, Poland, Bosnia Herzegovina, Hungary, Venezuela, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Serbia, Macedonia, Croatia, Iran, Brazil, Spain, India, Israel, Russia… Gaining also different international awards. Since 2011 the group has its Artistic Residence at Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium (Holstebro, Denmark) and participated also in other program of residency in Europe & Central America, among them: Art Quarter Budapest (Hungary), Godsbanen (Denmark), Venice Biennale – Theatre (Venice, Italy), Guestroom Maribor (Slovenia), Citè International des Arts/Les Pepinieres (Paris, France). They are also behind the community based performance project KUNSTPARTIET / ART PARTY, which between 2016-2019 had its headquarters at Bomhuset – Museum for Miniature Art, one of littlest museums of Denmark. MAYOR IN RESIDENCE is the longest performance ever made by a couple of artists (535 days).
