“Do you want me to dance or do you want me to talk?”

In Jessica and Me, the long-standing soloist of the iconic Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal does both with irresistible charm, talent and comic flair.

With a shock of black curls, an infectious laugh and a pair of red stilettos, Cristiana Morganti offers a tantalising glimpse into her career, from her classical ballet training to her fateful training with Pina.

This much anticipated new solo show is a self-portrait in two voices: her inner self (Cristiana) and her alter-ego (Jessica). She alternates between losing herself in a whirlwind of movement and observing herself with a fierce and unrelenting humour.

A fascinating exposé on the life of a star dancer – both on and off the stage.


 

“Cristiana Morganti merges the fury of a Mediterranean virago with the wide-eyed innocence of a clown… an irreverent fairytale of Cristiana through the looking glass”.
Il Venerdidi Republica
