Simone Forti

Born 1935, Florence, Italy
Lives in Los Angeles, California

Simone Forti is an internationally recognized performance innovator. Together with the artist Robert Morris, Forti founded an improvisational theater and dance group in San Francisco in 1957. The group attempted to create experiences that were liberated from the stylized choreography of ballet or the rigid formalism they saw in some modern dance. Forti created pieces that recreated every day movements like eating or dressing. She also explored the tensions of natural processes such as falling, rolling or climbing. At the forefront of the revolutionary blurring between art, life and performance that characterized contemporary art in the 1960s, Forti has continued to teach and create innovative performances that challenge both dancers and viewers to experience the movement of their own bodies.

Stories, in life, do not exist.
Like a landscape in a picture,
set the lens, start the story,
from this tree,
this baby, lover,
lost job,

-S. Forti, 2009
