 Vanessa Michielon
(Post-doctoral Researcher, University of Turin, Italy)


“How to dance live in interactive dance?”


Vanessa Michielon  holds a PhD in Cultural Heritage and a Bachelor and Master 
Degree in Media and Cinema Engineering (Polytechnic of Turin). Her research 
interests span from movement-based interaction and performative approaches in 
cultural settings to interactive performance and dance for the camera.
 After a 
Bachelor and Master Degree in Media and Cinema Engineering at Polytechnic of 
Turin, Vanessa Michielon received in 2009 a research grant financed by MIBAC 
concerning Multimedia Archives for Live Performances. Subsequently, she 
completed a PhD program in Cultural Heritage (Communication, Valorization and 
Territory) at Polytechnic of Turin. Following the Master Thesis “The 
performative museum”, her PhD dissertation, “Faire Mouvoir, Faire Savoir. 
Natural Interaction and Performative Approaches to Museum Exhibition Design”, 
explores issues such as natural and tangible interaction in exhibition design, 
new theoretical frameworks in museum studies, valorization of intangible 
heritage through movement-based interfaces and the idea of visitor-performer. 
At the same time, she trained in ballet, modern, contemporary and community 
dance and took part in interactive performances with international artists, 
such as the FraMESHift project (dir. Renata Sheppard). Since 2011, she is a 
guest dancer in the ensemble “The very secret dance society/Raffaele Irace” 
(Turin), and since 2013 with the collective VOLVON. She is a post-doc research 
fellow at University of Turin and a guest artist with DAP-Lab (London)
