I was born in Rome, Italy, in 1967.
At age 21, without former experiences, I started to research in the field of mime and dance performance.
Through the years I trained with mime /dancer Adam Darius, with mime/dancer Lindsay Kemp, with Marcel Marceau, with Japanese mime/actor Hal Yamanouchi.
In absence of a performing school in Rome, I chose to follow mime classes and workshops, while getting a bachelor degree in history of dance and mime, university la Sapienza, Rome.
I also practiced capoeira,yoga,qi qung, contemporary dance and improvisation.
At 25 I was working in street art festival in Italy and Europe-Certaldo – Avignon – Edinburg- Perigoux.
In 1994 I first saw a butoh dance performance by Masaki Iwana.
Since then I studied his method along 15 years, participating to his workshops in Italy and France.
In 2000 I co-founded the butoh dance collective Lios, organizing the international butoh festival “Trasform’azioni” from 2000 to 2013.
I could then follow the teaching of Yoko Murunoi, Ko Morobushi, Min Tanaka, Akira Kasai and Daisuke Yoshimoto in repeated stages and choreographed performances.
I danced in the Akira Kasai choreography “Eliogabalus”, in Min Tanaka piece “31 july”, in Masaki Iwana piece “flowers drunken by the smell of blood”.
Butoh dance offered me a vision of a different body, a different way to live the act of dancing and a breathless range of spiritual body experiences.
Those experiences gathered in a intense performing activity with solo works presented in art galleries, theatres, urban interventions, clubbing and television.
From 1998 to 2004 I joined Kitonb extreme theatre company ,as performer, creative consultant and physical-trainer.
In 2003 I founded the company Zeitgeist, producing and choreographing solos and group works with guest artists:
