While I was trying to study acting, in 1998, l bumped into...and against this “weird dance”. After few years I realized I was still there, sweating, falling, laughing and feeling. So I decided to go deeper into it, entering the phantasmagorical world of workshops and festivals, bumping into and against strange teachers who helped me sweating, falling , laughing and feeling even better. I’d give anything to forget all that so to start again, off for the journey again! But it's not possible! Since 2008, I have been teaching in Italy (intensive workshops in many communities and Italy Contact Festival '15), abroad (intensive workshop in Madrid, Lleida, Alcoi, Colon, Basque Country, Amsterdam, Israeli Contact Festival '16, Dancefullnes Ukraine '16) and I have been organising events to help Contact Improvisation spread as much as possible (I am one of the founders of the Italy CI Camp). It's a bit as make the journey from the start, knowing the path but taking a different luggage with you; and always hoping to bump into/against something interesting. I see contact dance as the best way I have in this lifetime to meet someone outside the social contract and to keep my drive for movement alive.
Life is movement, moving in pairs accelerates awareness. I deeply believe that contact improvisation is potentially, a big, healthy revolution.
