Cristiana Morganti

Jessica and me

Tanz im August

“Do you want me to dance or do you want me to talk?” Cristiana Morganti, a long-time soloist in Pina Bausch’s company Tanztheater Wuppertal, can do both. She can dance, and she can talk about it with irresistible charm. “Jessica and me”, her first evening-length piece, is a self-portrait. Decked out in a white dress and red stilettos, she offers us fleeting glimpses of her life and development – reflecting upon the art of dance and what it means to be a dancer. With nonchalance, humour and impeccable timing, she recounts the story of her momentous meeting with the dance icon Pina Bausch, only to then deftly break away from her.
