Kinkaleri was born in Florence in 1995. The members meet, combining their experiences and previous studies gained in various fields, with the intention of carrying out specific projects, therefore urging the will to work around concrete ideas and always taking care of all necessary aspects for the creation of one’s own business. Kinkaleri operates between theatrical experimentation, movement research, performances, installations, sound materials, seeking a language that is not based on a style but directly on the evidence of an object. The group’s work received hospitality at numerous programs in Italy and abroad, theaters, contemporary art centers, festivals and exhibition spaces, including Triennale/Teatro dell’Arte – Milan, Teatro Fabbricone – Prato, Teatro Grande – Brescia, Sophiensaele e KunstHalle Deutsche Bank – Berlin, Centre Pompidou – Paris, Kaaitheater e KunstenFESTIVALdesArts – Bruxelles, Centro Pecci – Prato, Fondazione Gulbenkian – Lisboa, Kitazawa Town Hall – Tokyo, Oriental Pioneer Theatre – Beijing, Mercat de les flors – Barcelona, La Batie Festival – Geneve, Festivan di Santarcangelo – Santarcangelo, Palazzo Strozzi – Florence, Biennale Danza – Venice, MAXXI – Roma, Athens Festival – Athens.
During the years there have also been numerous collaborations with artists including Emanuele Becheri, Jacopo Benassi, Riccardo Benassi, Canedicoda, Daniela Cattivelli, John Giorno, Invernomuto, Jacopo Miliani, Margherita Morgantin, Nation25, Paolo Parisi, Tempo Reale, Nico Vascellari.
