Flurina Casty is a spoken-word performer. Through descriptive, sometimes lyrical storytelling and fresh metaphors she builds colorful sites and situations in the spectators mind. Her performances absorb audiences and take them on an imaginative journey, through unique concepts and places, only to break the order by a sudden movement or an unforeseen gesture.
Thus, her performances not only work to imagine but to emphasize the present moment; by juxtaposing the representation of space through language with the environment of the performance, which she often refers to by means of gestures.
Her stories explore the notion of absence, memory, modes of contemplation and meaning.
Currently she investigates three sites, such as abandoned structures wherever she encounters them, an almost desolated village in the rural area of the Alps and bodies of water, like the river, the lake and the sea.
Ideally, most of her performances occur in public spaces, with a particular focus on man made structures and environments, which have certain significance in relation to the story she's telling.
She performs texts in English and Swiss-German, depending on the context in which the performances take place.

Furthermore, Flurina Casty's artistic practice extends into collaborations with art and community projects all around.
She has worked together with a number of independent projects in South Africa, such as 'Buyaphi University' an outdoors Sunday school and community center, 'After School Art Project' an incubator programme for youth-entrepreneurs and 'Trackside Creative' a creative hub in Soweto.
In 2017 together with Kristian M. Meyer, Lotte van der Woude and Eline Tsvetkova they founded 'precart collective'. They organized a first conference, including a workshop, a film-screening, performances, interventions and an exhibition in 2018.
They are now in the process of determining a path of the collective…
