Nobody’s Business is an open-source platform for the sharing of artistic practices in the performing arts. The ambition is to facilitate non-exclusive and collective production and distribution of knowledge by regular doing-together. It exists to create space for lateral exchange, outside of the economies of workshops (wherein the information is generally unidirectional) and creations (which are usually supported via single authors and pieces).
Organized in Italy by Annamaria Ajmone and Sara Leghissa, it has been re-defined as Nobody's Indiscipline: a macro-practice per se, open to artists, scholars, curators, and producers. More like an animal, it has its own hybrid, inclusive, perceptive, and mutable body. Taking its shape from previous steps and experiences of the project, it transforms itself through expanded times: the time of non-encounter, between one edition and the others, and the time of partying. In the dead of night, Nobody's becomes Nessuno, a party, a form of self-financing, a space of freedom, and a fluid gathering of artistic practices.
The event is signed significantly "Nobody’s": neither authorship nor something “new” demanded. Nobody’s can provide the creation of a time and space instead of taking place in a given time and space, where and when performing arts, movement, speech, dance, action are all things that belong to Nobody, but rather are activated by and pass through each of us.
Nobody’s Business is a concept by Eleanor Bauer, Alice Chauchat, Ellen Söderhult. Organized and re-imagined in Italy by Annamaria Ajmone, Sara Leghissa.
