Dani d'Emilia is a roaming Italo-Brazilian performer working in various cross-border performance, theatre and live art projects. Using the potential of performance as 'encounter', her work tends to manipulate, activate and connect different facets of how we perceive the culturally implicated body, exploring its physical and conceptual distortions. Throughout the years Dani has obtained training in several physical practices and performance methodologies including Mime & Physical Theatre at the Desmond Jones School and Theatre & Visual Arts Practices at Dartington College of Arts (UK). Dani is a co-founder of the London based Immersive Theatre Company Living Structures and a core member of La Pocha Nostra. She has presented her work in various cities across Europe, Latin America and USA.
