For over twenty years I have been researching in the dance field, body and study of somatic techniques, developing a practice and a pedagogical approach oriented towards the process of transformation of the artist and the person. In parallel with my professional history as a dancer, performer and choreographer, for the last ten years I have developed an artistic research, both alone and for pedagogical reason, through retreats in nature, in the woods, in water environments and in the desert, using an interdisciplinary approach open and nourished by artistic investigation.
The theme of corporeality and the inner path are central, both lived through the background of sensitivity and of perceptive faculty in relation to the environment and ritualized through creation
I accompany my research with video and environmental audio recordings to produce sound and vocal landscapes. I proceed in my research trough questions, placing the body as a medium in its environment, in a process of re-connection and transformation by listening to the living. I look for the subtle perception of what we call the Soul of the World, a sense of belonging and coexistence of different living beings and systems.
My approach to nature, to the themes of being and corporeality has led me to undertake, in addition to dance, a training in different methodologies and somatic techniques including: Sensitive Dance®, BMC®, meditation,craniosacral therapy, shiatsu. Among the meetings and the paths crossed, the meeting with the dancer and coreoghraper Claude Coldy, with the osteopaths Jean Louis Dupuy and Marie Guyon, with Mike Boxhall and the training in shamanism were particularly significant. Anatomy of the voice with Blandine Calais Germain, analysis of the movement with Hubert Godard, postural re-education(Aplomb) avec Noelle Perez.I Research in the field of apnea and voice. In 2017 I created the project Rhizoma/Le Pratiche dell'Ascolto, a three-year course of training and artistic research through somatic practice in nature.
I debuted professionally in France in the 1980s in the field of Jazz Dance and in some television and film productions of the time in France and Italy. In 1988 I met the Butho dance with Kazuo Ohno and the Teatrodanza with Lindsay Kemp that will lead me to new expressive codes.
