Teatro Sociale – Bergamo Alta

in collaborazione with Fondazione Teatro Donizetti

project FOCUS PINA: PINA BAUSCH, LA RIVOLUZIONE DELLA DANZA

A lecture performance on the poetry, technique and creativity of Pina Bausch

In her lecture performance MOVING WITH PINA Cristiana Morganti, long standing soloist with the Tanztheater Wuppertal, invites us to a journey through the universe of Pina Bausch, seen from the perspective of a dancer. 

How is a solo constructed? What is the connection between motion and emotion? 

How do dancer and scenography relate to each other? When does a gesture become dance? And above all: what creates the magical and mysterious relationship between artist and spectator? 

Demonstrating her insights with extracts of the Tanztheater repertory, Cristiana Morganti tells us about her personal and artistic experience with the legendary German choreographer and let’s us discover how much devotion, imagination and care for detail are involved in Pina Bausch’s unique movement language. 

CRISTIANA MORGANTI is a freelance dancer and choreographer. 

She obtained her training and degree in Classical Dance at the National Dance Academy in Rome and in Modern Dance at the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen. Following her studies, Cristiana collaborated with a number of established choreographers such as Susanne Linke, Urs Dietrich, Felix Ruckert and with the company NEUER TANZ directed by VA Wölfl and Wanda Golonka. In order to advance her interest in experimental Theatre and particularly in the use of the voice, Cristiana furthered her performative education with the Odin Teatret of Eugenio Barba. 

From 1993 until 2014, Cristiana Morganti was soloist dancer with PINA BAUSCH’S TANZTHEATER, WUPPERTAL, where she is regularly invited back as guest artist to this day. She has danced in most of the repertoire performances and participated in many new creations since. As part of Pina Bausch Tanztheater, Cristiana starred in Pedro Almodovar’s “TALK TO HER” (2001) and in Wim Wenders’ “PINA” (2011). 

Currently, Cristiana Morganti is guest teacher at the Conservatoire Nationale Superièure de Paris and at the Accademia Nazional D’Arte Drammatica Silvio D’amico in Rome. For the Conservatoire de Paris Cristiana Morganti created the choreographies OUT OF TWELVE (2012), SACRÉ PRINTEMPS! (2013), PETIT RÊVE (2017). 

In 2010, Cristiana Morganti created her homage to Pina Bausch: the lecture- performance MOVING WITH PINA, staged to great acclaim in many Italian Theatres and recently also in Germany, Chile ( festival Santiago a Mil ) and Spain. In 2011 she received the Positano Leonide Massine Award as Best Contemporary Dancer of the Year. 

For her solo creation JESSICA AND ME, which sees her as Author, Choreographer and Interpreter, Cristiana has been awarded the Critic Award Danza & Danza as best Interpreter/Choreographer in 2014.
JESSICA AND ME has since been presented in over 30 cities in Italy, France, Ireland, England and Germany, with performances at the DUBLIN DANCE FESTIVAL – Dublin, BIENNALE DE LA DANSE – Lyon, THE PLACE – London, Theatre des Abbesses (THEATRE DE LA VILLE) – Paris, TANZ IM AUGUST – Berlin. Further representations of JESSICA AND ME are programmed already in Spring/Summer 2018 in DANSENS HUS – Stockholm and in Festival BIPOD – Beirut. 

Cristiana Morganti’s latest work A FURY TALE has premiered at the Festival APERTO – Reggio Emilia in October 2016. 

For the well known italian company ATERBALLETTO she recently created the 40 minutes choreography for 9 dancers “ They didn’t know where to leave me…” ( premiere 19th October 2017 – Festival Torino Danza – IT ).
