About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Traveling through Indonesia Jan 14 - Feb 24 2016.

ABOUT ME

I am an Italian director and choreographer, based in Berlin (Germany). I work between contemporary performance, experimental music theatre and experimental video art. I am also into fashion, visual arts, opera, and traditional music and dances.

Overall, a nomadic soul with a call for art, and a passion for energy work. Dedicated, subtle, independent, warrior, thoughtful, restless, assertive, smiling, concrete, sincere, able of and not able of.

I multitask between choreography and filmmaking, and their inter-relation. The first one is my very first love. I believe in dedication as freedom. I set up an interdisciplinary production house www.casamarziano.com and love to meet proactive artists around the world.

I have started an interest in fashion design, textiles and tailoring. I have plenty to learn there, and would love to!

I am very much fascinated by passionate people with aims and goals who hope and dream, and disciplined travelers. I am a movie-goer and I enjoy quality theatre and dance performances, so let's enjoy together if we feel like.

I don't eat meat, but I will not be bothered if you devour a beef ribcage in front of my eyes.

I am a queer traveler and I do not tolerate homophobia, transphobia, machoism and racism of any kind. Respect, love, embrace. Overall, I consider myself flexible and accommodating.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Together with 10 buddies, I organized a FlashMob of 500 people. I saw a 80 yo woman with bright red lipstick. I went for some and I have got even more. I loved without concern. I have chosen to let go.
