Other
Flurina Casty is a spoken-word performer and storyteller. Her stories are inspired by true events and observations that she encounters in her day-to-day life. With simple means at hand, she engages her audience in layered storytelling and imagining spaces. Found texts fragments and visuals such as theoretical texts, news articles, speeches, videos and photographs are embedded within her presentations and often work as point of departure for her inquiry.
She performs mainly in English but also German and Swiss-German.
Besides performing Flurina Casty focuses on context oriented art projects, that have educational value within local communities beyond the institutionalized art machine. She’s active as a project coordinator and has co-produced on different community art projects such as 'Buyaphi University', 'After School Art Project' and 'Trackside Creative' in South Africa. In 2017 together with Kristian M. Meyer, Lotte van der Woude and Eline Tsvetkova they founded 'precArt collective' an international collective for art and knowledge. They organized their first exhibition at UNDERBANEN in Copenhagen in 2018.
Recently she has started to collaborate with Johannesburg based Hip Hop artist Short Skilz aka The Black Magician who recently released the EP 'Spirit Scream' preceding his upcoming Album.
