Ambra Senatore


Tanz im August 2012 | HAU Hebbel am Ufer (HAU1)

Production Details / Press Releases

»Passo« works on the confusion between reality and fiction, between what is real and what is fake/constructed; it plays with the unveiling of theatrical fiction and with the transformation of meaning: one thing initially appears in some way to then reveal itself as something else. It also deals with relationships among persons, with the necessity to return to a shared dimension of community, since we are essentially related beings.

Ambra Senatore is a choreographer and performer. After a few experiences as co-author, she created solos between 2004 and 2008, and group shows starting from 2009. She is the author of »La danza d´autore. Vent´anni di danza contemporanea in Italia«. After a PhD in contemporary dance, she has taught history of dance at the Universtity of Milan. She is one of the associate choreographers of the network ALDES.
