Spreafico Eckly was founded by Andrea Spreafico in Bergen in 2013 in the apartment of Andrea Spreafico and Caroline Eckly, where it still has its HQ – hence the name. Directed by Andrea, the company has never had a fix group of collaborators, but the team of each piece has been decided accordingly to the needs of the concept. Nonetheless some patterns have repeated themselves and Matteo Fargion (London) and Theatre Replacement (Vancouver) have become important partners in the development of the artistic discourse of the company. The forms of expression are different every time (songs, choreographies, theory, drama, opera, interactive situations). Most of Spreafico Eckly’s works treat one element from the past in order to re-consider the way we usually watch at our present time. They are thought as breaks (pauses) in the constant flow of informations, as ways to reconsider our present  without “taking position” against it, as models of an alternative way of thinking our time.Before working as an artist Andrea Spreafico has been a Nietzsche scholar (PhD at University of Bologna, Italy and Reims, France in 2006). He’s currently Associate Professor in performance at the Bergen School of Architecture.
