Independent author, choreographer, and performer, Grazia has Italian origins.
She develops an original movement-based bodywork, contaminating different aesthetics, formats, and poetics in a hybrid art form. Her aesthetic is Intimate and minimalist and is centered on the body, investigating loneliness as the fil rouge of contemporary life.
Trained in Ballet, Modern dance, and Contemporary dance, Grazia obtained a bachelor's and Master's degree in Theater History at the University of Bologna (Italy). She achieved an advanced training diploma and a specialized diploma in Benesh Movement Notation at the Conservatoire Supérieur National de Musique et de Danse in Paris (CNSDMP). In Paris, she starts an independent path of choreographic experimentation to generate her writing. Since 2008 Grazia got artistic residencies in Paris, London, and Berlin. She produced choreographic projects halfway between dance, theater, and visual arts, performing in Galleries and Festivals around Europe. To this period belong: ON BEING AN ANGEL, two years of residency at Mains d'Oeuvre in Paris; PER VOCE SOLA, residency at McLarens Studio in London; ISLANDS; ANGELINE, residency at Corpo6 gallery in Berlin; ANATOMIE D'UN ANGE.
In 2015 she moved to New York, where she continues to work on the format's contamination, opening a deeper reflection on memories and the resulting body images.
She began an artistic collaboration with the composer Stefano Cavazzini, with whom she created a series of works such as CORPI IN VERTIGINE, in partnership with the Department of Italian Literature and The Department of Visual Arts at Fordham University in New York); SILENT BREAT, BREATHING UNDERWATER, TERRA FIRMA, and AGATA, in partnership with the Museo B.Romano of Termini Imerese/Palerme and the patronage of ICOM.
Recently Grazia produced TRACES OF ME, FROZEN SKY, and BACK to BACH in collaboration with Creative Performance Network and Dixon Place Theater in New York.
