Bogliasco residencies often inspire Fellows to take their work in new directions, generating unexpected interdisciplinary collaborations.

Drawn to each other’s creative styles while in residence together this fall, Finnish choreographer Maria Nurmela and British composer Charlotte Bray created this mesmerizing video performance, on-site in the village of Bogliasco, as a beginning to what they hope will be a rich, long-term partnership.
