Devised Theatre

From 2017 I have taught Devising Theatre modules at IAB. My work is based mainly on the Russian school (Stanislavski and Chekhov) but also resonates with the visual culture I have study and worked with.  Every project has a specific theme within which students are asked to find their own voice, work independently and collaboratively and create their own work. I have directed the workshop and the production of  "Alice in Wonderland", written and devised by Year 3 IAB, 2019

Education and Training

I was born in Florence, Italy. I trained as an actress with a regional theatre company: Centro di Teatro Internazionale, based on the Russian school.  While designing sets and props for the company shows I was also studying at the Academy of Fine Arts (BA Maestro in Scenografia -Florence). In Venice, I took a Master ( MA Theatre Design - University of Architecture of Venice - Two years course). 

I graduated with the devised project "The Last Prisoner".  then moved to London and attended the Motley School.
