She founded Teatrino Clandestino and worked as an actress for Teatro delle Albe and Fanny & Alexander. She currently collaborates with artists and performers coming from different artistic and scientific disciplines, and works as an actor’s trainer with Michèle Jean Bruyere (Sup de Sub.

This is a training course on stage presence, that consists in technically scouring what there is (inside us) after we choose to get involved. It is a processing chamber, where people can approach their expressive power of reality interpretation through a radical observation of the ordinary, natural, urban as well as anatomic and imaginary elements. Learning how to use our voice and breath and how to move in a different and new way also means changing the level of self-perception even in the ordinary things. Conceiving and practicing new gestures generates a different way of thinking and consequently suggests the birth of something new and autonomous.
