Alessandro Businaro is an interdisciplinary artist, who works bringing together live performance, photography, video art, sound design and archival research as well. He began his artistic studies at the "Alessandra Galante Garrone" Drama School in Bologna, and then continued his studies at the “Silvio d’Amico” National Academy of Dramatic Arts in Rome. In 2018 and 2019 he took part in the competition promoted by Venice Biennale Theatre College for young directors under 30, being selected both times among the six finalists. The Venice Biennale's contest has been an opportunity for Alessandro to meet the work of Dario Felli, a sound designer who - through a dramaturgical study of sound - has contributed to an enrichment of the entire creative process. In September 2020 Alessandro took part in the 48th edition of Venice Biennale with “George II” directed by him and written by Stefano Fortin, a young Italian dramaturg. In 2021 Alessandro accepted to become the Artistic Director of Teatro in Quota, a Festival of performing arts begun in 2017 and held in the center of Italy, in Altopiano delle Rocche.
