Eleonora Danco

Eleonora Danco

Italy

Eleonora Danco works as a playwright, director, actress, and performer for the stage. Her way of doing theatre is physical, impactful, full of tension, where body and text merge into a single expression; her writing style, instead, fluctuates between prose and slang, drama and comedy. Her first play, Ragazze al muro (1998), was then followed by Nessuno ci guarda (2000), and, over the next few years, by the plays Me vojo sarvaĆ , Ero purissima, Sabbia, Scroscio, La giornata infinita, Squartierati, Intrattenimento violento, Senza titolo 3 and Donna numero 4. Her shows have been produced by theatre companies in Parma, Rome, and Naples, and by EXPO 2015 and the Triennale di Milano. As an actress, she has played many roles, collaborating with Nanni Moretti, Marco Bellocchio, Michele Placido, Gabriele Muccino, Pupi Avati, Ettore Scola, Vittorio Gassman and Gigi Proietti. N-CAPACE is her first feature as a filmmaker.
