“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

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…
