The Choreographer

The extensive experience as a dancer and the continuous research of new expressive means, lead her to explore new possibilities of visual language and movement. In June 1999 she creates her first choreography.

Vanessa, over the years, developed a more experimental and contemporary choreographic work, melting dance with contemporary theatre, visual and multimedia art. Her choreographies have been performed in Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and United States in collaboration with numerous theatres and staged for international festivals in Vienna, Linz, Venice (Bienniale Danza), Spoleto (Festival of Two Worlds), Prague, Rome (Rome Philharmonic and Auditorium, Park of Music), Kigali, and Dar es Salaam (visa2dance festival). 

In 2007 she established the company “FLUSSO Dance Project” of which she is currently Artistic Director and resident choreographer. Since 2008 She is the Artistic Advisor of the Visa 2 Dance Festival following on 2012 the Time2dance Festival. In May/June 2010 she took part of the CHOREOGRAPHIC COLLISION project at “Biennale Danza” in Venice directed by Ismael Ivo.

She currently lives and works in New York. Her work has been presented in many festivals and platforms of the NYC dance scene. Latest creations are RED KNOT for the TICINO IN DANZA festival in Switzerland, KINYAGO for the TIME2DANCE Festival in Tanzania and ME-CHANCAL for the Dance Gallery Festival @ Alvin Ailey Citigroup theatre, NY. THE THOUSAND and ONE NIGHT was presented in preview on Feb 2015 @Alwan for the Arts and ME_CHANICAL# moving images@ Wild project within The CURRENT SESSIONS 2015.
