I was born in Italy in 1975, from then to now dance and theatre became the main things in my life. At the moment I can see that one of my strong interest is to perform in informal contexts with a real interaction with the audience at various level of communication.
During 2000-2003 I was member of ARCI in Italy. There I developed street theatre performances including “guerra e pace” based on the declaration of the war in Iraq and how war can be a background condition of our daily life.
In 2003 I was part of ‘Labyrinth of the Imaginary’ directed by Judith Malina and the Living Theatre Company in Napoli
With ARTIMMMEIATE I performed in “One shoe adagio” an African dance/Clown/Ariel, site-specific, improvisation performance at ‘Isola delle Meraviglie’ Festival Theatre in Venezia.
From early experiences to my present I have been trained independently in contemporary dance, improvisation and physical theatre including ODIN teatret (Danmark) and Julie Stanzack (Wuppertal Tanzteater of Pina Baush). I have a Science background with a PhD in Environmental Science and a PDA in Arts Education in Practice. I am based in Edinburgh, I take part in different performing art projects as well as I am dance theatre facilitator in UK and abroad. I was Co founder and now company dancer in LaNua -Movement and improvisation.
What I find very important now is to bring back arts in the community.
to perform within a group is like “to dive into the circle of the fiction in order to find the courage to be true” (E. Barba)
