Tanztage Berlin 2014 | Sophiensæle

Production Details / Press Releases

A streaming communication, based on an emotional physical intellectual system, where I raise the question of what is possible for the public/viewer and the performer to percieve out from their heads; behind movements, expressions and words. An exploration research is parallell developed for understanding how fast this communication is and which effect it can have on the body/mind.
Barbara Berti

Born and raised in Bologna, Italy, Barbara Berti bases herself in Berlin. She works on her own choreographic projects and collaborates with dance and theatre artists in performance art work through Western Europe. She rooted her career in graphic design then in physical theatre and dance; continued studying different techniques in contemporary dance, contact improvisation and Bod-Mind Centering approaches. She is interested in issues of kinesthetic empathy and the embodied transmission of physical experience in the interaction with the audience.
