I’m a dancer, choreographer and dance teacher born in Messina, Italy , currently based in Berlin, Germany.
The practice of dance is my way to explore the relationship between the individual and the world around and to express the inner world using something very tangible which is our body.
Ranging from meticulously choreographed to improvisation and instant compositions, I enjoy physicality, freedom, restraint and concentration. I am curious how physical qualities are lived and experienced rather than remaining representations of ideas.
I started dancing ballet at a very young age and then shifted my interest into modern and contemporary dance.
Graduated in Philosophy at University of Messina, I holds a Master's degree in Dance and Performative Arts at Movimento Danza in Naples and I further developed my skills in contemporary dance attending the professional dance education program in Modem Atelier run by Compagnia Zappalà in Catania. Over the years I have been continuously collaborating on several dance projects working among others with Cadmium compagnie ( Paris) ; Movimento Danza ( Naples) , REVOLVEr Dance Theater ( Berlin), Connecting Fingers Company.( Berlin).
I develop my own work , alone and in collaboration with a variety of artists of different disciplines, presenting my creations in different venues and festivals all over Europe (Sophiensaele, Dock11, Uferstudios, Laborgras, Ackerstadtpalast Festival Teatro Italia, Quinte(s)senza , TaorminaArte , PAN Palazzo delle Arti Naples amongst others).
I'm a co-founder / artist at Berlin based Company HAA and co-founder and a member of Collective ONE:THIRD, winning the jury price of Festival 100 Grad in Sophiensaele in 2015 with their work "Fate of the Galaxies".
Teaching is a very important part of my work and through my classes and workshops I continue my research of movement and choreographic forms. I love to share my practice and I’m continuously inspired from my students.
I am also a certified BASI® Pilates teacher.
