ARTIST STATEMENT

My field of research is Butoh Dance and Creative Movement. I explore specific ways to approach the body and the elements of movement, with particular attention to the role of proprioceptors and internal movement, in search of a personal and authentic way of expressing through my body. I develop tools for movement and enhanced presence to employ them in my performative activity. This can take the shape of a theatrical piece, an installation, an interactive performance, a site specific action and can take place in any type of conventional or non-conventional setting such as theatres, urban spaces, art galleries or clubs.
