Ubi Broki

L’anno che verrà

Fra De Isabella (Ubi Broki) was born in Milan, in 1984. After graduating in filmmaking and photography at Civica Scuola di Cinema of Milan, in 2009 Fra cofounds Strasse, a performing art group that works in public space. At the same time, in 2007, they starts D-jaying with the pseudonymous Ubi Broki, organizing electro-romantic-queer parties. In the last years Fra works as sound designer for the performances of Giorgia Ohanesian Nardin, Titta Raccagni and Chiara Bersani as well as DJ with Cristina Crystal Rizzo e Daniele Ninarello. For some years now, together with other artists, they are questioning themselves on artistic production practices from a transfeminist and queer perspective. This work starts from the urge and desire to challenge dynamics, approaches and questions that can traditionally be found in those practices.

Notes on Short Theatre 2020

 

How would you describe your music?

I believe that “my music” is generated by the implementation of a network of relationships.
Relationship between one piece and another, between what I feel like sharing and the response of those who are there, between my body and that of the dancers or listeners, between us and the space we occupy together at the precise moment in which it happens.

Who or what—real or imaginary, present, past or future—do you think contributed to the creation of your artistic work? Is there any object/trace you own that can make this clear?

What do you imagine you will say about your artistic work in fifteen years time? Would you ever have imagined making this work fifteen years ago?
audio transcription:

I couldn’t have imagined that at 51 I would feel like that. In fact everythings seems so far away, but at the same time there are images, or the way in which the light sometimes rests on things, which bring me back right there, in a time that is really less than a fraction, and therefore I immediately feel that everything was important but also painful and that maybe this is the most difficult thing to tell and then I think that when I was 21 I think I already knew something and I also knew that I would have to fight against myself to succeed in it. Maybe when you are younger the hardest thing to do is to imagine the end of things or maybe you don’t know yet how not to be so afraid that things will end and by end I simply mean a change but always upwards and by high I mean closer to the center, so now maybe I am myself ?!

Audio Transcription:

I couldn’t have imagined that at 51 I would feel just like that. I can say that in fact it all seems very far to me, but at the same time there are images, or the way in which the light sometimes rests on things that bring me back to a time that is really less than a fraction right there, and therefore I immediately feel that everything has been important but also that it has been painful and that perhaps this is the most difficult thing to tell. Then I think that when I was 21 in my opinion I already knew something and I also knew that I would have to fight against myself to be able to do it.
Maybe when you are younger the hardest thing is to imagine the end of things or maybe you don’t know yet how not to be so afraid that things will end and by end I simply mean a change but always upwards and by high I mean closer in the center,
so now maybe it’s me?!
