Strasse is an Italian group of artists founded in Milan, Italy, in 2009. Strasse works in the fields of performance and cinema, investigating relationships between movement and urban landscape, using film language as a filter to understand and examine reality. Strasse aims at bringing performance into channels and spaces of the urban life, gaining backgrounds, signs, temperatures, without subverting their meanings but stealing them from the unflappable daily flow and carrying them, for a moment, elsewhere.
Strasse’s artistic research is mainly based on the practice of site-specific creation. It gives the audience the possibility to change their point of view, allowing them to see what already exists, in order to create new frames surrounding scenes and things.
