AIR's David Weinstein interviews Roberto Paci Dalo, creator of Six Memos, an installation of light and sound in Piazza San Marco's Secret Courtyards based on recordings made in Williamsburg's Hasidic community. In this program, Paci Dalo discusses his work and why he chose to exhibit in the Secret Courtyards. Host to archeological rarities and sculptures from antiquity, these Secret Courtyards were also AIR's Venice Biennale homebase.
A pioneer in the use of digital technologies and telecommunication systems in art, particularly interested in performing arts as a meeting point of languages, Paci Dalo has written, composed, and directed almost 30 music-theatre works that have been presented worldwide. Parallel to his musical work, Paci Dalo's films and video works have been presented in numerous international festivals. His dramaturgical materials are frequently re-composed in sound and video installations – often site specific and interactive – presented in museums, galleries, and the public space.
