Trickster-p arises out of the encounter of Cristina Galbiati and Ilija Luginbühl and is intended as an artistic research project which pushes at the boundaries of different art forms.

Initially their research focused specifically on the centrality and physicality of the performer; as time went on, their focus has shifted from a more narrow definition of theatre to include expressions that transgress genre boundaries, both conceptually and formally resulting from the mixture of extremely heterogeneous artistic media.

Trickster's main focus has hence shifted from the performer to the spectator. The emphasis on the relation of the audience to the art work and the ever-evolving definition of being a spectator in today times have now become recurrent elements of Trickster's works. Cristina Galbiati and Ilija Luginbühl's poetics is an invitation for the spectators to open up their perceptive space and create their own reality on the boundaries between inner vision and outer sight.
