Marco Donnarumma is a performance artist and scholar. A unique presence in contemporary performance, he distinguishes himself by his use of emerging technology to deliver body performances that are at once intimate and powerful, oneiric and uncompromising, sensual and confrontational. Working with biotechnology, biophysical sensing, and more recently artificial intelligence and neurorobotics, Donnarumma expresses the chimerical nature of the body with a new and unsettling intensity. Donnarumma holds a Ph.D. in Arts, Computing and Body Theory from Goldsmiths, University of London, and is currently a Research Fellow at the Berlin University of the Arts in partnership with the Neurorobotics Research Lab Berlin. His writings are published by MIT Press, Oxford University Press and Springer.
