Tiziana Arnaboldi

 choreographer dancer

“What I am looking for is the truth. In relationships, in feelings, in gestures, in silences, in looks. I am interested in bringing life onto the stage, aiming for the essence, by penetrating secrets and intimacy, revealing fears and uncertainties. I see the body as an artistic and a linguistic project, without barriers between different ways and means of communication to create a medium of universal feelings”.

She trains with Rey Phillips in Zurich, with Carolyn Carlson in Paris and with Pina Bausch in Essen, Germany. With her company she creates and produces many shows and performances, creations which have been appreciated in Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Africa.

Since October 2009 the company Tiziana Arnaboldi has residence at the Teatro San Materno in Ascona.
She creates the compagnia Giovani (young company) formed by local dancers and dancers from other countries.

Since 2015 Tiziana Arnaboldi has been the artistic director of the Teatro San Materno. She creates platforms for international projects and artistic events inspired by this place, rich in art and history. She brings dancers together with international artists from various fields and presents performance-shows at the theatre and in other places and spaces, in search of new transversality. She gives life to the dialogue between the arts.
