Manuela Sarcone

Manuela completed her contemporary dance studies at London Contemporary Dance School before joining Bern Ballet under the direction of Cathy Marston. During her time in the company, she worked on choreographies by Alexander Ekman, Medhi Walerski, Johan Inger, Orjian Andersson, Andonis Foniadakis as well as performing as a solo dancer for the production of ‘Blaubart’ directed by Michael Simon and choreographed by Nicola Grundel.

While in Bern, she seriously injured her knee while rehearsing. Contact Improvisation has been an integral part of her return to dance after injury and her main movement practice since then.

She completed her Master Degree in Performance with a dissertation that examined the relation between technical training and improvisational practice within CI. As a freelancer, her performance experience ranges from choreographies for

the stage through operas, installations to improvised work.
