From Italian TV dance productions to release-based and post-modern dance techniques, from contact improvisation to literature studies and theoretical engagement, Maria F. Scaroni is moving through the complex network of learning and making dances since 1996. Scaroni’s works focus on the process of collaboration, play with durational experiences and are featured by a crossbreeding between performance, choreography and installation. She created works with Jess Curtis, Vania Rovisco (AADK), Frank Willens and is currently performing works by Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods, Tino Sehgal and Jeremy Wade. Maria teaches in Berlin’s University HZT and is actively involved in other independent training programs (P.O.R.C.H. and Smash) where she is developing methodologies focusing on the body as material. She holds a Masters degree in Italian Modern Literature, with a thesis on education and dance.
