7 is the first fragment of a research on the body and the material that started in 2017. A few tools added to daily and accustomed movements that don’t seem so significant are metamorphosed into an improbable handiwork atelier, between performance and absurdity.

Born in Milano in 1977, Claudio Stellato is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Brussels. He first trained as a jazz musician at the Scuola Civica Jazz in Milan while working on street theatre. He then travelled and trained for several years in theatre and circus in different countries before entering Le Lido, Centre for Circus Arts in Toulouse in 2001. His first production, L’Autre, premiered at Les Brigittines in Brussels in March 2011 and had been touring the world during four years. This performance was the fruit of three years of research spent investigating the relation between body and object. Since 2014 he has been Associate Artist at the Halles de Schaerbeek in Brussels. In October 2015, after 3 years and a half of research, he presented his second show La Cosa, at the Halles de Schaerbeek in Brussels. It was rewarded with the Critics’ Award for Best Circus Performance 2015-2016 and is still on tour all around Europe until March 2019. Besides his own projects, he organises workshops and provides external advice on peer productions, collaborates with several theatre and dance artists and choreographers and also takes part in the Circus Next jury.
